1970s Scott Barrie Silk Ruched Maxi Dress

A rare and extremely beautiful Scott Barrie dress made of the lightest, finest silk chiffon. I absolutely love the print on this dress and I love how he has cleverly used elastic worked into the fabric to create shape and definition exactly where he wanted it. This has been used across the shoulder and into the high neck. It runs down each shoulder top and is used again at the cuff. This gives it an twist on a medieval type feel and really allows for volume through the sleeves. The waist has 5 full bands so a slight empire waist is creates. Using this technique also allows for the fabric that does not have elastic to be very full - the skirt is stunning and just cascades to the floor. It is a really special piece and very beautiful! I personal favorite! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Sizing is variable because of the elastic gathers that really allow this piece to stretch and work for different sizes - if the bust fits the rest should work fine. It closes with a back painted metal zipper and each cuff has elastic.
