1980s Yves Saint Laurent Painters Smock Dress

Made in a hard to find, larger size, this Yves Saint Laurent smock or sack dress is constructed from a light weight polished cotton that is fabulous once on. These sack dresses were a mainstay of his line during this time period. They really played on volume and cut. Despite this fullness it can still be immensely flattering if the proportions are kept in balance when styled and on. I love the fullness through the body and that those spectacular sleeves were cut wide and full until they cinch in at the cuff on each wrist. A softly pleated round collar and buttons at the front are the perfect finish. It can be belted for a more defined shape. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips on to wear. Buttons at the neck with pockets on each hip seam. Tagged a YSL 46 but please check actual measurements.
