This is one of the best-made dresses I've ever seen. Whoever Miriam Shore is, or was, her workmanship is impeccable. Photos cannot capture the superb quality of this lovely 1970s goldenrod silk shirtwaist.
Details include: Covered buttons with loop closures. The quilted self-fabric belt is French-tacked at the back waist and snaps to the dress at the front on either side, then ends in long, tubular ties. The neckline features a feminine notched collar. The back and both sleeves have inverted pleats. And of course it feels divine. Somewhat sheer. Requires a slip for modesty.
