This is a very nice quality white knit sweater dress made in Italy for Yves Saint Laurent Paris. The dress is made in a simple pullover style with rounded neckline. The sleeves are cut fairly wide with no turn to the cuff. The kimono style neckline and cuffs are finished in a different knit from the body of the dress, which has a patterning.
Label: Yves Saint Laurent Paris Tricot. Made in Italy.
Color: Ivory white.
Material: No content label is present, but I did have a similar example in black, which had a content label that read 47% Acrylic, 22% Kid Mohair, 26% Nylon, 5% Viscose - the content may be different on this piece.
Sizing: Size 36 is indicated - this is a French size, which should be equivalent to a US size 6, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the garment into consideration:
Shoulders: 19 1/2” across shoulder seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 22” long from shoulder seam
Sleeve Inseam: 19 1/2”
Bust: 36” around, taken under the arm, unstretched
Waist: 34” around, unstretched
Hips: 36” around, unstretched
Overall length: 46”, measured flat
It is in very good condition - this dress looks to have seen little, if any use and was well stored over the years. It comes from a fairly large lot of French designer clothing that I acquired from the estate of a former importer of Parisian labels.
This is a lovely quality sweater dress.....easy to wear....
