70s Sweater Dress
-- Vintage Knit Dress
-- Red & Black with metal button collar
-- Women's Large 14-16

This sweater dress is a faux vest style -- very popular in the late 70's Annie Hall started it all! And the crisp sailor/military look.

The striking red and black plaid faux vest makes it look like there's a black puff sleeve dress under, with broad shoulders and and a white stand-up collar. Three metal buttons in parallel, joined by metal chains, complete the military look. They say "The Devonshire Regi(ment)". They let the white ribbed knit faux dickey and collar peek through. The vest part is a heavyduty knit plaid in red and black --big squates of dark red, and narrow lines of black.

No shoulder pads, just a little gather of lightweight lining fabric to hold up the puffs The sleeves are heavy fine guage knit, with blind-hemmed straight cuffs. The skirt, with its loose pleated front, and eased back, is the same heavy-duty smooth knit fabric. It's a dropped waist, hanging at hip level.

Long back zipper and hook-and-eye closure. The hem is blined hemmed by machine. Ends below the knee.

Very little pilling to this acrylic fabric, but it *is* inevitable with acrylic yarn, unless the item is brand new. So I'd still call the condition of this dress excellent. Very well made and striking attention to detail, for the day.
