Top quality silk shift dress from the early 1960s. Glossy, shimmering fabric in an easy-to-wear silhouette. Jewel neck with front saddle detail. Princess seams front and back, with welt pockets on front seams. No belt loops means you can place the belt, or not, as you prefer (it looks great with or without). Fully lined in silk. Fun, contrasting green nylon Talon zipper, with top hook&eye. Easily goes from office to cocktails.

From the Harris estate. Mrs. Harris had several Sir James silk shift dresses and we bought them all. See a bright, floral-on-black example in perfect condition at Better Dresses Vintage dot com.

Labels: By Sir James

Fiber/Care: 100% silk, dry-clean only

Condition: This dress looks perfect at first glance, with no glaring flaws. On closer inspection, you will find several scattered spots, and the price has been adjusted accordingly. The worst offender is shown in the third photo, and as you can see from the close-up view in the second photo, it is not terribly conspicuous. We have photos of every spot, and if you'd like to see them before purchasing, just email us. The underarms are very stained on the lining, only slightly on the exterior.

shoulders: 16.25" to outer edges
bust: 36" plus room from shaping
(Bebe is 35" around, and dress is not clipped)
waist: 33" maximum
hips: 40"
length: 38" nape to hem
