Vintage 1970s Shirt Dress Black Polyester Size S / M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful early 1970s dress made in a shirt style.  The dress is made of black polyester with white decorative stitching.  There is a shield shaped patch pocket applied to the left bust and the dress does up with 10 plastic buttons down the front.  The stitching forms an X shaped motif on the pocket, at the bottom of the opening and on the shoulders.  The dress is unlined and the labels are no longer present, but I have a feeling that the dress is of French origin, fairly nice quality for a polyester dress.  It is in very good condition except for some missing white stitching at the back neckline that could be re-stitched if it bothers you.     

Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a small to medium size - please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the dress into account:

Shoulders: 16 1/2” across shoulder seam-to-seam

Sleeves: 8” from shoulder seam

Bust: 34” around, taken under the arms

Waist: 29” around

Hips:  35” around

Overall length: 39", measured flat

This is a very cute, easy to wear style - very modern looking despite being 40+ years old...easy to wear.
