Jean Varon 1970s Vintage Blue Chiffon Evening Dress With Sheer Overlay



This dreamy vintage Jean Varon evening dress has a sleeveless shape with a chiffon overlay cape that covers the shoulders and creates a sheer sleeve. This dress has a beautiful plum purple lining with a true purple sheer layer that gives this evening dress a slightly lighter hue when in the light. The front of the dress has a slight v-neck shape and the back of the dress has an opening through the chiffon layer, which exposes the zipper. This dress has a tie around the back of the neck with a hook and eye closure and there is a metal zipper down the center back seam. T This beautiful dress was made in England in the 1970's. It is 100% Polyester and the lining is 100% Acetate. This dress is labeled a vintage US size 10, but we estimate this would best fit a modern day size 4/6. MEASUREMENTS: BUST: 34" WAIST: 36" HIPS: 42" LENGTH: 60" CAPE LENGTH: 15" shortest 30" longest
