Item details

Vintage from the 1970s

Simple but wonderfully effective evening dress by John Bates for his Jean Varon label. Made from a weighty black synthetic fabric, the front is simple in the extreme - with only the lettuce-edged ruffles around the top and hem and a simple straight cut. The back, however, is where the focus lies, with the layers of fabric meeting at the top of the zip and falling open to reveal the underdress with cascading lettuce edges ruffling downwards. This is also a rarer non-teeny tiny Varon, being a vintage 16 (more like a modern 14).
