1970s Unlabeled One Shoulder Black Lightweight Jersey Nylon Dress

Much like the Haslton dresses that I look for all the time, this has that same iconic one shoulder silhouette.

There is a certain sexiness caused by the illusion of having the entire dress suspended by buttons at the shoulder. It gives the sense that undoing those buttons would cause the entire dress to drop in a puddle around you (which it would). It is constructed from two attached layers. The inner dress is cut from the same synthetic nylon jersey as the outer layer is and it skims over the body in a long sheath. This inner part of the dress has a high slit cut into the side that travels up the side of the leg opposite to the draped side exposing a long expanse of bare skin when you walk or move. Over, and attached to the inner sheath is a second draped panel of jersey that is suspended from the shoulder. It falls from that shoulder down and over the front of the dress for a very Grecian goddess feel. The fabric used has a touch of transparency to it and is very light and easy to wear. It is also wash and wear and virtually wrinkle free which makes it perfect for traveling. It is very easy to style too - a quick change of shoe takes it day to night in a snap. Excellent condition.

Slips on to wear and has two buttons and fabric loops at the top of the shoulder. These will fit a variety of sizes since they are not cut to be super fitted and the nylon jersey does have some stretch.
