VERY RARE JEAN VARON BROWN SPIDER WEB MAXI DRESS WITH HUGE BALLOON SLEEVES - S-M
Every goth girls dream dress! This documented 1973 Jean Varon spider web maxi dress. Never seen this in brown before! Like most Jean Varons of the era, this is just a masterpiece. It's heavy and drapey and cut to perfection. Fitted bodice with a high collared neck and buttons to the chest. Huge balloon sleeves with tightly fitted cuffs. Fitted waistband with ties to cinch the silhouette in. Huge sweep full skirt which sits at floor length. But the back obviously steals the show, with a sheer mesh panel embroidered with a spider web and finished with small purple sequins and even a small beaded spider. Short front metal zipper to fasten below the waistband and hook and eye to secure. It's truely spectacular.
The dress is labeled a size 14 but vintage sizes run small and this fits more like a modern day general size S-M, I would estimate a UK10-12, but please refer to the measurements.
Length: 61.5" approx nape to hem
16.5" from shoulder seam to waist
Very good condition except for two small area of darning, one on the shoulder, almost hidden by the collar and one to the back by the underarm. See last photo.
