Fall 2005 Miu Miu Purple Printed Off Shoulder Semi-Sheer Dress

This Miu Miu dress is very pretty and very easy to wear.  The Fall runway in 2005 showed several variations of this print and I think this production dress is the best of them all. The dress just pops on and the cut is loose and easy and can easily be styled to wear for day or evening. The print the covers the surface of the dress is an elaborate and intricate design that combines swirls of color on a purple base. The fabric is a semi-sheer cotton voile. It is this fabric choice that makes it so light and airy in feel once on. The cut is generous and loose through the body and this gives it a bit of a baby doll feel but with a touch more definition through the waist then a true baby doll silhouette would have. The sleeves are long and have a touch of fullness to them. The skirt is cut to fall just above the knee. I love the neckline - it has a tie that runs though the edge and this allows you to loosen it so that it falls off the shoulder. You could also tie it tighter to bring the shoulders in more for a totally different feel. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a hidden set side zipper. The front tie runs through the top of the neckline so you can widen it or tie it in tight. Tagged a modern Miu Miu 46. The loose cut will allow it to fit a variety of sizes. Appears to have been worn very little if at all
