Jean-Louis Scherrer Wool Day Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This circa 1968 ravishing Jean-Louis Scherrer light peach dress is a great option for daytime events. The dress has an extremely flattering cut, skimming the body until the waist level. Stitching details in the front, at the back and at the end of the short sleeves. The belt in matching wool can be worn around the waist, but the dress is equally pretty without it. Fully lined, this piece closes with a zip and a hook in the middle of the back. Genuine color is slightly more luminous.
