1970s Vivid Striped Knit Missoni Dress

A hard to find and amazing vividly striped Missoni dress perfectly showcases why this brand has had such staying power. Cut like a extra, extra long T-shirt done in their proprietary knit it is fabulous when on. The top is purposely cut to feel oversized - right down tot eh extra large pocket on the front breast. Even the sleeves are a little extra long and extra wide. It skims into a sleek column that will stretch to follow your curves from there. It comes with its original extra long knit sash that is cut along its weave to naturally twist. This gives it a great stripe on stripe play when wrapped around the body. It is fabulous condition and all the colors are as crisp and bright as when they where first done! So beautiful, it is an amazing and rare piece of fashion history and in excellent condition.

Shoulder: dropped and 21" across
Bust: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam, unstretched to about 23"

Unlined and slips on to wear. It is tough to measure as it is knit and stretches. The top is cut loose and almost over-sized so if you are smaller it is meant to look sort of like an over-sized tee on top. The original knit sash is present.
