1970s Mila Schon Black Silk Crepe Dress

 

 

 

 

With a nod to the glamour gowns of the 1940s, this dress demonstrates Mila Schon's attention to detail in cut, fabric and execution. Designed in a supple silk crepe de chine with amazing drape, the dress is tucked and pleated through the bodice into the waist, then released into elegantly draped pleating of the skirt. The shoulder is lightly padded, and accented with black sequins, while the waist echoes the sequined shoulder treatment in a wide banded faux belt. The draping at the hip conceals inseam pockets, and the dress is hemmed in a soft tulip hem. Back zipper closure.  Bust measures 36", waist 26", hip 37", sleeve 24", shoulder 15", length 45".  Bearing both a Mila Schon label and a Lou Lattimore boutique label, the dress is in excellent condition.  $285
