Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

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.   



Age: 1980s


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....
