I've owned and loved this for years, and interestingly I noticed that the recent Ossie Clark collection produced an almost identical dress in black and grey..

Bold emerald green, with chartreuse curved inset panels to flared 3/4 sleeves. In a bonded textured weave, it fastens to the rear with a concealed metal zipper. The dress is fitted over the bust in a shift shape. Sleeves are lined.

Made by Shubette, I love the sleeves as they have a hint of the psychedelic influence of the time!

Measures: Approx a modern UK8

Bust 34"

Waist 30" 

Hips 36" max

Length from nape to hem 34"

Condition: 

It had evidently been worn before I owned it, and whilst immediately wearable and visually striking there are a couple of minor flaws..

- there is some slight felting to the wool in the crease of the underarm areas, where it has rubbed

- underarm seam has two rows of stitching to secure, and on one side one row is missing but the seam is still joined fine by the second.

- has possibly been shortened but works well at this length if so? Hand stitched hem.

- there’s a really faint mark to lower right side that is almost impossible to demonstrate.. but I’m pointing to it!

- the odd small pull as shown
