1970s Ted Lapidus Blue Silk Dot Dress

Graphic and bold bright blue silk and white dot silk dress from Ted Lapidus. I really love this print and the fabric is a high grade silk so it feels like heaven on. It is cut with a nod to the flapper dress and actually has a dropped waist and the torso is cut tubular with no definition. The skirt is attached low on the hip and has a flirty bit of fullness. I love that the sleeves have some volume to them! We have tied the original belt at the hip seam and then cinched it in to sit at the top of the hip - this is how it was meant to be worn and give the top portion a bit of pretty airiness and keeps the skirt just to the knee. Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips on to wear. Each sleeves buttons to close. Has its original tie belt and we have draped the top over a bit to give it a fuller skirt. It will hang longer if you leave it down and more flapper-esque

Waist: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam
Seam at Hip: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam
