M US women's letter

Shimmery 70s metallic knit long dress, gown by Wenjilli. Black with silver toned metallic thread, it casts a blue sparkle depending on the light. It has an extra wide scooped front neckline with open work flowers. This open work is repeated on the cuffs of the long sleeves. The bodice, top of the sleeves, and cuffs are in a ribbed knit whereas the long beautifully draped skirt is a plain knit. Originally the dress came with a sash, but it is missing. It does up at back with a long nylon zipper with metal pull. Beautifully made, elegant evening wear.

Note: belt does not come with dress.

Modeled on a US size 6 dress form.
