This stylish French couture 1960s bold striped wool dress is a beautifully constructed piece of couture. The dress is pure wool, and has been skilfully dyed to create the bold stripe design in contrasting shades of olive green. The weave is medium weight and coarsely textured but is soft to touch and fully lined in black silk. Elegant tailoring creates a flattering silhouette over the bust, waist and hip, to suit an hourglass figure. The tennis-style skirt flares out from below the hipline in a series of neat, wide set pleats to finish just below the knee, where the hem is reinforced to add weight and movement. The three quarter length sleeves are tailored at the elbow and the dress has a crisp square neckline to complement the stripes. There is a central zip fastening at the reverse. This piece is in superb condition and would best fit US size 6, UK size 10.
