Claudia Rame long burgundy wool sheath dress

Claudia Rame long burgundy wool sheath dress 1

 

This is an Italian 1980’s long sheath dress. Made of wool, the fabric is a double knit comfort stretch with textured burgundy and black stripes, made to effortlessly enhance the body’s natural silhouette. The buttoned slit on the back of the neck gives the dress an extra fashion twist . A perfect balance between comfort and elegance! Since it is made of wool the label says dry clean. I have tried machine washing it at lowest temperature and there is no problem at all doing so. Ironing isn’t necessary either if you like a textured fabric!
