Rare 1960s Jean Patou Knit & Wool Dress
Shoulders: 13" across with stretch
Bust: 17" flat across the interior lining from side seam to side seam - this will give some
Natural Waist: 13" flat across the interior lining from side seam to side seam
Hips: 21" flat across from side seam to side seam
Bodice: approx 21" from the shoulder to dropped waist - this is meant to slightly bunch when worn
Skirt: 26" from the dropped waist to bottom hem
The dress is fully lined in black silky rayon (even under the knit bodice) and closes at the back with a fine metal painted zipper. The skirt has a slightly padded feel and holds it shape. The back of the neck closes with hook and eye set on a grosgrain ribbon that is then attached to the knit. Note the color of the knit is a true soft grey and white - there are no yellow tones as per the pictures. It should be dry cleaned when cleaned again in the future.
A just posted a short video done by Natalie Joos, the girl behind Tales of Endearment. In it she styles a dress with a simlar skirt treatment - click to link here to see so you can get an idea of how this feels and wears in real life
