1980s Printed Silk Ungaro Wiggle Dress

A drop dead gorgeous Ungaro dress! It is utterly fantastic in every possible way and manages to be dramatic, sexy and classic all at once! It is superbly fitted and almost corseted all through the torso, bust and hips - over which the silk is gathered in perfect little soft drapes. The shoulders are cut high and narrow and the sleeves a bit fuller. I love the high collar and the front cut out detailing. The fabric is wonderful as well. It is 100% silk inside and out. It is very well made - even the lining is attached all the way around the hem. The kicky little three layer pleated hem line gives it a bit of a forties vibe. A really stunning piece! Excellent condition

Shoulders: 15.5" from seam to seam
Bust: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam
Total length: 39" from shoulder seam to bottom hem
Sleeves: 25" from shoulder to longest point

The dress is fully lined in silk and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The original owner removed the shoulder pads at some point but kept them so they will be sent if you wish to have them - tacking them back into place would give the piece back it's original eighties feel.
