1970s Silver Ruffled Sleeve Jean Varon

This is an amazing Jean Varon!! I literally did the happy squeal when I received this one! It's all flowing goddessy chiffon in black with silver threaded edge details. The skirt flows form the empire waist line and has yards of chiffon over the inner skirt. A little piped detail sits at the waist and has ties on either side for a pretty and feminine touch. The bodice is high and simple but has elaborate inverted triangle chiffon panels inverted from the neck line that float on the front and back. Each tier of layered in silver lame threading. Finally the sleeves - I swoon over these sleeves. The are composed of silver edged, tight layers of chiffon gathered into elaborate and dramatic ruffles! I absolutely love it! Excellent condition!
