1970s Unlabeled Open Back Black Jersey Dress w Glossy Feather Cuffs

This dress that has a lot of impact and its feathered cuffs give it a shot of high glamour. It is made out of a black stretch jersey that has just a bit of give to it for maximum comfort when it is on. Each sleeve has a wide cuff made out of glossy black feathers. This simple addition to the cuffs is what  really ups the dramatic feel of the dress. The waist is defined by a high band inset of the same fabric. The front plunges to this band in a deep V. At the back there are two ties, one is set at the low back and the other ties just behind the neck. In between is a curved, round cut out that leaves the back completely bare. The sleeves are long and lean sand then end with that fabulous burst of feathers. The skirt falls to the floor from under the band at the bust, skims over the hips and then flares out as it nears the hem. Love the play of the bare skin of the bodice with the high drama of the feathers. Excellent condition

Unlined and closes at the low back with a metal & nylon zipper and snaps at each cuff.
