Yves Saint Laurent Silk Chiffon Smocked Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Constructed in black silk chiffon, this 70’s YSL dress is entirely smocked from shoulders to hips. It features a soft ruffle collar over the bust and back, which can be worn off or on the shoulders. Subtly sexy with its transparency, this unlined dress is a vintage French size 34 but runs rather big to size due to the stretchy fabric (smocks). Just slip on to wear this wonderful feminine airy dress !
