This early 80s dress in teal and black printed chiffon is by vintage designer Susan Freis (sister of designer Diane Freis). This feminine, full-skirted dress has a ruffled, pleated collar, a plunging V-neckline and a smocked waist. “Smocked” equals parallel rows of elastic, which means comfy and easy to fit—hooray! The Sheer fabric has an abstract print of striped and polka dotted designs, very 80s New Wave, but also inspired by the prints of the 1930s and 1940s. The elbow-length sleeves have elastic at the hems and the blouson bodice has a shoulder yoke in back and large shoulder pads, covered with matching chiffon fabric. The flowing, trumpet or godet shaped skirt has triangular panels set into it at the hem, for added fullness. The polyester chiffon fabric has one tiny pull in it, on the right sleeve. This authentic vintage 80s dress is in very good, near excellent condition, appearing unworn, with no other issues to note.
