Very light very mini sleeveless dress with pink novelty print

Very light sleeveless mini dress with pink novelty print 1

 

This very sexy mini summer dress must have been the star of the Japanese 70’s. It is made of an extremely light viscose crepe fabric with a fragile silky feel, delicate and easy to wrinkle, sheer when seen a against the light. It was tailor made and hand sewn, with the fabric manufacturer’s label (Reimon d’or Original Print) running along all the back of the dress on the inside. The clumsy looking seamwork on the inside of the dress makes it a true collectable!

Estimated size: S / XS

Label: Fabric manufacturer: Reimon d’or Original Print
Condition: Excellent

Collar: 6.75″ – 17cm
Shoulders: 13.75″ – 35.5cm
