Like the other dress by Biba that I have this one's predominant detail are those amazing sleeves. Each ends in a full circle cuff that gives you this dramatic detail and movement once on. In typical Biba fashion the rest of the dress is kept simple with a figure hing silhouette. It is that perfect British mix of saucy, sexy and girl next door. The fabric used is her signature classic black moss crepe that was favored by the Brits during this time period. The front bodice is fitted and plunges in a V. From there the black moss crepe fabric is cut on the bias and flows from just under the V on the bust to the floor in a beautiful sweeping column that hugs the bodice and waist and then widens as it nears the ground. It is am amazing original Biba piece that is extremely collectible and infinitely wearable. A real treasure of a find. Excellent condition.
Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The occasional sheen here and there form pressing over the years but nothing that mars the dress or would be considered anything but normal vintage wear and patina.
