Treasure Item - c1973 Red Knit Wool Dress & Belt from Saks

This is a super cute little dress in a light wool and gorgeous red color. It is not perfect but is still very wearable and is priced to let some girl love it and get a few great years out of it still. If memory serves me correct, this had a Mollie Parnis tag in it at one time that has unfortunately been lost. It still does have its dated Saks Fifth avenue tag present that dates it ti 1973. It is cut with shoulders that sit just off the body to suggest a bit of a sleeve. The  bust and waist skims over  the body and the skirt has a little flare as it nears the hem. The original belt is present and clips on to cinch in the waist, though it looks equally as great without the belt. It is not perfect but presents wonderfully.

Fully lined in a red silk and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The dress has some nips in the fabric here and there (photoed). It was temperature heated and specialty cleaned and the fabric stood up fabulously and is stable now. Presents as very good once on.

Bust: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 38" from neck to hem
