1970s Saks Youth Dimension Backless Jersey One Shoulder Blue Dress

This dress is from the in-house Saks Fifth Avenue Youth Dimensions label of the 1970s and is very well made and designed. It is made out of a deep blue jersey and there are yards of that jersey used in its construction. The top drapes up to a single shoulder and is suspended there by a thick braided strap that curves over the shoulder and across the back. The back is left completely bare otherwise and it is set into the back skirt so it almost "lifts" the waist up and away from the body a little bit. This creates a stunningly beautiful line and an added touch of sexiness. From there the skirt cascades to the floor in yards of bias cut jersey. It has a tremendous amount of volume and fullness, but this is only seen when you move. It can be worn as is or you can add a belt to cinch in the waist even further. This is really a wonderful interpretation of the classic Greek "goddess" dress and the jersey chosen for the fabric makes it easy to wear and care for. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips on to wear with elastic that runs through the waist. The cut and elastic waist will allow this to fit on a variety of sizes. I have put XS-MED but it might even fit a larger size if you are not too big on top and the waist fits.

Bust: variable due to the open back cut
Waist: 13-17" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Bodice: 15" from top of bodice to waist
Skirt: 42.5" from waist to hem

Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-MED
