1981 Bill Tice Black One Shoulder Jersey Dress w Gold Lame Flower Detailing
I have had the peach version of this one shoulder dress by Bill Tice in the shop just recently and was super happy to find a black and gold one so soon. Versions of Tice's one shoulder pieces sit in the closet of countless celebrities like Rachel Zoe & Nicole Richie (and my own!). This is one of those dresses that you know is going to work every time you put it on. Whenever I get my hands on these they fly out the door. It is insanely sexy with an easy to wear caftan feel that is suspended from one single shoulder. It is made of a liquid jersey that feels amazing on and has the added bonus of traveling very well. It is the kind of piece you can throw into your suit case and slip on with either flats or heels when you reach some far off destination and be perfectly ready to go. The inner dress is long and slim and this is topped by a wrapped looser overlay that is cut on a curving angle. The inner dress is seamed to just about the hip and then it is open from under there, with coverage provided by the wrapped overlay. This allows a bit of leg to show when you walk or sit. The single shoulder has a large knotted flower detail and both the flower and the neckline edging are accented by ribbons of gold lame. This one still has its original hang tag and was never worn. Excellent condition.
Unlined and slips on to wear. The easy fit should allows it to work on a variety of sizes. Has its original Marshal Fields hang tag and has never been worn. The fabric has a bit of stretch. The easy cut should allow it to fit a range of sizes.

Waist: to 21" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 58.5" from shoulder to hem and you can adjust at the shoulder
