1980s Gathered Silk Chiffon Red Print Dress

I would bet that this is an Ungaro but it sadly has not label! Made of a beautiful scarf grade silk chiffon that has been meticulously gathered horizontally until the skirt flows out in a sexy, flirty little skirt. I love the way the halter is formed and crosses at the neck. The upper half of the back is left bare and its a sexy little dress! Excellent, appears never worn condition

Fully lined in a red silk chiffon and closes with a side painted metal zipper. The halter top crosses and hooks at the back

Bust: 17" from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13" from side seam to side seam
Hips at bottom of gathers: 18" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Length: approx 37" from neck to hem

Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML
