Iconic Balenciaga Runway Wool Dress, Fall-Winter 2008-2009

Labeled a French size 38 (US 4-6), this structured piece runs a little bit small to size. Fits approx. : US 2-6 / FR 36-38 Measurements (taken flat) : Width (armpit to armpit) approx. 46 cm (18.1 inches) Waist approx. 35 cm (13.8 inches) Length (shoulder to hem) approx. 100 cm (39.4 inches) This item has been professionally cleaned, pressed & carefully inspected by a couture-trained seamstress before being sold.
