Documented 1971 Oscar de La Renta Dress

A remarkable Oscar de La Renta dress from 1971 as documented in US Vogue! Made of a poly jersey it has a simple, heavily elasticized bodice like a tube top. This hugs the body until it gets to the waist and then the skirt flows out from there. The sleeves are amazing! The too are elastic until just above the elbow and then they puff out until they are cinched back in at each wrist. You can wear it on or off the shoulder. I love the little ruffle edge along the top! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each cuff has fabric covered snaps to close. Attached tie detail at front waist. The zipper can open if not completely zipped but it is original and is fine is zipped to the top and the pull folded down so I have left it in its original condition.
