Ronald Amey Abstract Wool Dress Long Maxi 1970s Vintage Size M


This vintage maxi dress was designed by the late designer Ronald Amey, most likely in the early 1970s. Made from wool fabric, it features a form-fitting partially lined bodice and fully lined skirt, and fastens in back with rear zipper and hook/eye closure. In good condition overall, this piece displays beautifully from a distance, however on close examination we note several poor hole repairs to areas of this dress (appears to be a bonding agent of some type) and several small holes and snags, most notable to areas of the bodice and arms. Our price reflects these condition issues and perhaps these can be repaired or improved by a professional preservationist. No size tag, but we're estimating this as a modern size M, and it measures, taken flat: bust - 36in, waist - 26in, hips - 38in, length - 56in. Tagged RONALD AMEY NEW YORK.
