The WOW Wiggle Dress


I'm totally in love with this vintage 1960s Kimberly knit dress. It is the ultimate LBD! I am crushed that it is so small. Someone else has to wear it and get all the stares. The hand knit dress is made from 100% wool. There is stretch in this Mad Men style knit dress. It is in excellent condition. This is the kind of dress that designers would buy to use as inspiration and reference. Victoria Beckham comes to mind.

Kimberly Knitwear was founded in 1946. One of the world's best dressed women--The Duchess of Windsor--wore Kimberly Knitwear's designs. The company brought high fashion stateside, copying Paris designs into knitwear fashions. In the 1970s, sales peaked at $30 million. The company closed in 1979.


This listing is for the dress only.

History/Backstory: A Vintage Virginia find.

Condition: Excellent. No holes. The only small thing is the collar could be tacked down. It is still attached, fine and wearable as it. I have shown all four points in Photo 5. Please convo if you would like additional photos. It is a FANTABULOUS dress.


Material: 100% wool.


Care: I would recommend Dry Cleaning or Hand Washing. Your choice.


Measurements:

(All measurements are taken with the garment lying flat and all buttons buttoned, zippers zipped....you get the idea. Measurements are doubled where appropriate, i.e. for bust, waist, hips. Measurements are in inches. I still haven't mastered the metric system.)


Length (from shoulder to hem): 41"

Bust (from armpit to armpit): 34"

Waist: 23"

Hips: 33"

Back (shoulder to shoulder): 15"

Armhole: 6"


Colors: Beautiful Black


Smoke free home.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.


Packaging: The dress will be carefully packaged and shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

Please convo if you prefer a different shipment method, like First Class, First Class International.

I love to combine shipping and always refund postage overages.


Smoke free home.


Thank you so much for taking the time to look.
