Prettiest 1980s Bill Tice Pale Peach Pleated Dress w Gold Trim Detailed Bodice & Elastic Back

I love all of the pieces by Bill Tice that I bring into the shop. Most, including this one, were made in the 1980-1981 time period. His easy-to-wear and glamorous pieces have been worn by countless celebrities for the red carpet and events. Every girl that has bought one of his pieces through me has absolutely loved it. I recently put a long open jacket that would match this dress in the shop that you can see here.

The dress is made out of a pretty peach jersey fabric that is meant to mimic the feel of silk jersey. This is one of those things that is a fail-safe piece that you know is going to work every time you put it on. This fabric has the added bonus of traveling very well. It is the kind of piece you can throw into your suitcase and slip on over just about anything upon arrival with either flats or heels and you are instantly ready to walk out the door. It is cut to feel long and slim with pleats running down its full length. The dress is cut to be  loose and easy over the body. It is suspended from the shoulders by two straps made of the same jersey fabric. The neckline scoops across ad plunges in the center with a tiny open keyhole that is very sexy. The cups of the bodice are detailed with his signature gold banding for a little bit of glitz. The back is a panel of elastic for even more added comfort. From there it falls to the floor in a loose and open cut around the waist and hips as the jersey drapes down and around your body. It widens out as it nears the hem. It is pure ease mixed with sexiness. Excellent condition

Unlined through the body and slips on to wear. The easy cut and open front should allow it to fit a range of sizes

Bust: 16-18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist-hips: open
Length: 57" from top of the shoulders to hem
