1980-1981 Bill Tice Black Jersey & Gold Accented Single Sleeve Dress

This is from the same time period as the other two Tice pieces that just landed in the shop so am confident to date it that same period where he was using that top stitched gold fabric to accent his pieces. The dress is very easy to wear and forgiving on most figures with its loose and voluminous cut through the body. Keep in mind that it does not mean that it is not as sexy as some of the others - it is just sexy in a different way. It is made of a black liquid jersey that feels amazing on and has the added bonus of traveling very well. It is the kind of piece that you can throw into your suit case and slip on with either flats or heels when you reach some far off destination and be instantly ready to go. It is has one single shoulder and sleeve and the other is left bare. The dress itself is long and full through the body with a high slit on the side opposite to the sleeve for balance. This lets some bare leg show when you walk or sit. The entire neckline is accented by his signature top stitch gold lame and this then ties right on the top of that one shoulder. Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips on. Ties at the top of the shoulder. The easy fit allows it work on a variety of sizes. The gold is a true gold in person. The open cut will allow it to fit pretty much any size
