About

Late 70's, early 80's YSL silk taffeta tent gown with fabric-matched belt. This evening dress is delicately gathered at front and back of the shoulders. Voluminous puffy long sleeves finish into an elastic cuff. Refined invisible side pockets. Exceptionally soft iridescent silk taffeta. Dress is unlined, pull on style with no fastening.
