This mid-weight wool crepe, minimalist black wrap dress, circa late 1980s or early 90s, is a truly classic, versatile, and well made piece: a “wardrobe workhorse”, to be dressed up or down for many occasions! The deep V neckline wraps from right to left, and fastens with a single snap and a hook and eye at the waist seam, as well as a hidden ribbon tie. Large shoulder pads create a dramatic silhouette, along with the flared, bracelet-length sleeves. The A-line skirt flares gently from hips to hem, and is just below calf-length on our tall mannequin (it will appear a bit longer on a shorter person). The dress is lined with a lightweight, organza-type fabric that is most likely rayon. An extra bonus: this elegant vintage wrap dress has full-sized, side seam pockets! It is in excellent condition.
