c1972 Geoffrey Beene Plunging Striped Summer Dress

About

I have had this same dress in the past but it was several years ago and I was happy to have another land in the shop as I always loved this dress. Beene is one of the great American designers and I actively look for his work, especially the earlier pieces from his Geoffrey Beene Boutique days. I absolutely adore this dress. It is a classic blue and white stripe on a almost transparent cotton voile. The skirt is cut with a beautiful fullness and flows out from a defined, banded waist that sits right under the bust and gives you shape. The fabric choice gives it a wonderful light airy feel and it feels wonderful to wear once on. Meeting the band at the waist is a front plunge that is cut in a deep V. Either side of that V then flows into the wide, billowy sleeves. There are no side seams to break the line of the sleeve, they simply just flow out from that V into stunning puffed sleeves that each end in a fitted 5.5" buttoned cuff. The back is equally as dramatic as the front. It also plunges to meet the band at the high waist but here it is cut and set wider so you get a more squared off feel that leaves an bare expanse of skin. A large white flower and sits over a matching fabric bow at the base of the front plunge for a last feminine detail. Excellent condition. Interlined through the skirt in a semi-sheer white silk organza. The bust is unlined. It close with a series of fabric covered buttons and a low back zipper. Each cuff closes with six fabric covered, round button and loops Sleeves: 28" approx. Shoulders: no defined seam Bust: open Waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: open Bodice: 11" from shoulder to top of band at waist + 3.5" band Skirt: 42" from bottom of band at the waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
