80's Purple Paisley Sheer Button up Dress


1980's purple paisley print dress. An absolute stunner of a dress! Open neck double pointed collar with a double breasted button up which goes all the way down to the floor

The top half is sheer and the skirt is lined. Full length sleeves, pleated on the shoulder which with the shoulder pad underneath gives it a lovely puff shape. Sleeve is finished with a cuff and button. All the buttons are a lovely textured black button.

The waist is fitted and the fabric has been gathered at the waistband at the top and also from two pleats across the shoulder which means is hangs off the body so beautifully and has lots of room and drape.

The skirt is slightly A line and hangs beautifully with a slight kick to it at the bottom. Midi length. It also has pockets! Hurrah! One each side. There are belt loops but sadly no matching belt

There has been a repair/alteration to one of the shoulder darts on both sides. It looks like it has been taken in to make the shoulder a bit narrower. It has been handstitched and is not noticeable at all and makes the dress a better fit in my opinion!
