Superb 1970s Grecian Goddess Frank Usher Jersey Dress

I have had this Frank Usher tucked away for a long time because it is so amazing it was hard to let go. If it does not sell quickly it might just disappear back into my archives so count yourself forewarned. It is really amazing. It is drapes to the floor and has yards and yards of slinky taupe jersey for its fabric and this fabric choice really drapes and moves wonderfully. It's a definite statement maker and everything about it screams red carpet, Grecian goddess and sex appeal. It is cut on the bias so falls and drapes to follow your every curve. The skirt is long and lean with a four panel of fabric lying over the inner skirt. Each panel is cut on an angle and the movement this creates is wonderful. The waist is set high and just under the bust, adding to its Grecian feel and it is elastic so extremely comfortable on. The top is pure sex with four triangles that all plunge to the waist and curve over the shoulders. On each shoulder is ties that have multiple strands of the same fabric and these trail down and over the shoulder. It's all old Hollywood meets Madame Gres meets an ancient Grecian goddess and it is fabulous. Excellent condition

The bodice is a double layer of the slinky jersey and the main inner skirt is unlined. It slips on the wear with elastic at the waist.
