Vintage 1980s Dress / Drop Waist 1920s Style / Orange & White




Gorgous 1980s silk dress by St. Romei for Neman Marcus. Made of orange and white tropical print silk, with a 1920s drop waist style. Perfect for a Gatsby themed garden party! Pintuck detail on the shoulders, long attached ties in front, and pleated skirt. There is a hidden side zipper at the hip along the drop waist panel. Not lined but made of very nice medium weight silk so it is not sheer. Looks to have been worn only once. There are just two tiny specks to be found. See bottom image on last photo. Note the orange is a bit lighter and brighter in person, it comes across as a darker tone in the photos.

Tag size 4. Despite the bust and hip measurements, this dress is meant to fit loosely and is best fit for size small, to possibly a medium, based on drop waist measurements. The drop waist panel should fall at the high to mid hip area. There is no stretch to this silk. Please refer to measurements in inches taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate.

Drop Waist across band – 34 inches (86.36 cm)
Hips about 5 inches below drop waist – 46 inches (116.84 cm)
