About



This Chanel sundress is spectacular. It is the perfect summer dress and being Chanel makes you feel decadent and spoiled the second you slip it on. It is made of a black and white knit - which is practically a neutral in Karl Lagerfeld's world. The knit is light but with enough weight to hold the shape he desired the dress to have. It has a definite seventies feel to it with its ruffle edged tiers and full length. The top is suspended by wide straps and ruffles adorn the upper edges and waist. The skirt skims the hips and it falls to the floor with a second tiered skirt near the bottom - again edged above and below that that ruffled knit trimming. There is a surprising amount of fabric in the skirt so the dress really moves wonderfully around you when you move. It is classic, feminine and sexy all at the same time. A gingham adorned double C logo button sits on the waist on one side - just in case anyone doubts you are wearing Chanel. Excellent condition.

The bodice has a double layer of the same fabric and it zips to close at the side with a hidden set zipper. The fabric does have some stretch so there will be a variety of sizes that can wear it. It is tagged a Chanel 38 but please check listed measurements
