1970s Ossie Clark Attr Quorum White Jersey Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Supermodel length, spectacular silk jersey Quorum gown in a crisp, fresh white that is still pristine and looks unworn. This is so well made and feels so substantial and yet still slinky and sexy at the same time. It is a real marvel of construction and surely an Ossie Clark design from the time he spent there! The skirt falls from the gathered and banded bodice in a long, dramatic swoop that gets wider as it nears the floor. It skims over the body and hips with literally yards and yards of slinky fluid jersey fabric by the time you reach the hem. The front is just spectacular - under each arm at the seam is n extremely very long jersey tie. With these you can wrap them around you as you wish to create an endless possible variety of ways to wear it from loose and easy to a very wrapped and fitted look. Excellent condition and very rare.

Unlined and slips over the head to wear. The top wraps and ties and you can tie it numerous ways. The fabric does have some stretch and is cut on the bias. It is a true pristine white in person. Note that the shoulder straps have stretched out from improper hanging before I acquired it. I have decided to leave them as is and they will require you to tweak them so it falls right on you. This has been taken into account in the pricing. It makes more sense for the new owner to do it and have them fitted perfectly to you rather then to have me guess. The cut allows it to fit almost any size as long as the band that runs above the bust will fit.

Top band above bust: to 17" flat across from seam to seam
Bust to Hips: open
Length: 62" from neck to hem

Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-LRG

This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
