1960s 70s Vintage Christian Dior Blouse Hostess Top France
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage Christian Dior blouse dating either to the late 1960s or early 1970s. This vintage Christian Dior blouse came from a lot of old store stock from the 1960s and 70s that I acquired about eight years ago, some with tags and some without, most of it unused. This vintage Christian Dior blouse, I believe, originally had pyjama bottoms, like a hostess lounging set, but the pants are no longer with it. It is decorated around the neckline and at the upper left with gold and black rickrack with affixed glass bugle beads, rhinestones and faux pearls. The top folds over and closes with a snap at the neck and one at the lower left and with three wound fabric buttons and loops at the upper left. It has a matching sash belt that cinches the waist. This vintage Christian Dior blouse is unlined.
Fabric: there is no content label, but I think that this is maybe a metallic and silk blended fabric, certainly excellent quality
Label: Christian Dior Boutique - Paris - Made in France.
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this vintage Christian Dior blouse should fit a medium to large size depending on preference for looseness, please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Neck: 18” around
Shoulders: 19” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves: 21” from the shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeve inseam: 15 1/2”
Waist: 38”, meant to be cinched with belt
Length: 25”, measured flat
Condition: This vintage Christian Dior blouse does have a glued patch repair to the back left shoulder (see last close-up photo) - not that noticeable, but present nevertheless. Due to this, I am selling this at a highly reduced price. Otherwise, aside from a number written on the label, the top looks great and presents itself very well.
This is very nice quality and would look great matched with black satin palazzo pants - very attractive 1960s 70s vintage Christian Dior blouse!
