This vintage 90s Betsey Johnson Luxe label mini dress/tunic is fun and flirty, and yet still feels sophisticated with its long sleeves, rusty burnt orange color and sandwashed silky feeling (and looking) rayon. It has something of an hourglass shape, with princess seams and tie back to emphasize the fitted mid-section, and a wide flared skirt and very cool semi-“batwing” sleeves expanding out from your wasp waist. Other delightful details include sleeves that come to a point over your hands and seaming. Totally Betsey!
• Center back zipper works perfectly

Please keep in mind that vintage clothing is, by definition, old. It has most likely been worn before, and it may have signs of wear. I do my best to note any flaws if they exist. Also remember that sizing changes – what used to be considered (and marked) a size 12 may now be more in line with what we think of as a size 6. For this reason, measurements are given for all garments. If you have any questions, please ask before you buy.

All items are offered and sold in "AS IS" condition. All items are measured carefully to ensure accuracy of fit, and all flaws are described so the buyer can make an informed purchase. Please ask any questions you may have on size, condition or any other item aspect prior to placing your order.

More on the Designer: Betsey Johnson (b. 1942) was given a design job at the new Paraphernalia boutique during her stint as guest editor at Mademoiselle magazine in 1965. There she was an important part of the "Youthquake" movement in fashion. In 1969 she, along with two friends, started their own boutique - Betsey, Bunky and Nini. From there Johnson wore a variety of design hats: Alley Cat from 1970 to 1974, Butterick patterns from 1971 to the late 1970s, Tric-Trac by Betsey Johnson from 1974 to 1976, and Star Ferry by Betsey Johnson from 1975 to 1977. Finally, in 1978, she formed her own company, Betsey Johnson, Inc., which she still operates today. One word that has always been used to describe the Betsey Johnson look is "young." Her clothes are fun and flirty, colorful and alive. (primary source: vintagefashionguild.org)
