1980s Black Wire Plunged Estevez Dress

Killer late seventies early eighties piece from Estevez that is absolutely a power dress combined with in your face sexy. Few pieces I have seen are plunged that far and have that strong a shoulder - it is like he took all the stereotypes of power and sex and dramatically emphasized them! Made of a double layer of a slinky matter black jersey the skirt has lots of movement while clinging to your curves. The waist is emphasized with gathered banding and the sleeves are long and skinny. Each ends with a gather that mimics the front detailing. The shoulders are insane and rounded and then of course you have that wired and formed V that plunges right to the waist! Amazing! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Shoulders: no true defined seams
Sleeves: 27"
Bust: to 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam
Bodice: 10" from neck to top of banding
Banding: 5" from top of banding to bottom of the front plunge
Skirt: 31" from the center of the front plunge to hem

Fully lined in a black silky rayon through the bodice. The sleeves are and skirt are a double layer of the knit jersey. It closes with a back metal and nylon zipper. Each sleeve has a short metal and nylon zipper set into it. The front plunge is wired with a very thick non-bendable wire cleverly hidden within the fabric so stays perfectly in place.
