1970s Leonard Silk Jersey Dress & Silk Chiffon Cape Set

About

This fabulous and seventies Leonard dress and cape set is a find. The dress in this set is made from his signature silk jersey fabric. This fabric choice give it the perfect drape and fit and it also wonderfully holds the color of the print that covers the surface. It is that perfect balance of being easy to wear and still having the feel of being chic and luxurious. This would have been a custom designed fabric and during this time period in particular, the company was producing the most gorgeous color palettes like this one. The design that covers both pieces is a mix of pretty flowers in pinks and purples on a black backdrop. I love the simple cut of the dress and how it flows to the floor in a swoop of bias cut silk jersey from the band around the upper bust. The cut is long and lean and the silk jersey drapes and moves with you as you move. Over this sits a pretty silk chiffon cape that buttons at the neck and has a touch of transparency to it and has a defined collar. It sits beautifully over the other dress and instantly takes the dress to the next level. Excellent condition. Unlined and closes with a side, metal and nylon zipper. the cape has a fabric covered button at the back of the neck. The dress fabric is a silk jersey and does have some stretch - the measurements given are to the comfortable stretch when laying out flat. The fabric is signed throughout.
