Rare and absolute breathtaking Ossie Clark with Celia Birtwell floral print. Colour is hard to describe, it's a kind of off-black, very dark grey with print in red, yellow, pastel blue and beige. Wrap style design with straps that loop through a hole and ties to the back. Almost open deep plunging bustline, showstopping!, and dramatic short puff sleeves. Skirt is full length with pleated panels to the sides, which gives it a lush fullness and drape and movement when worn. Fabric has a lot of weight to it, feels like rayon, hangs beautifully.
Labeled a size 8, but I would say this fits like an xxs-xs, approx a UK4, but this is my estimate only so please refer to the measurements.
Shoulder to upper waistband: 13"
Shoulder to lower waistband: 14.5"
Length: back of neck to hem: approx 60"
Good condition and presents very nicely, but does have some slight flaws and is priced taken this into consideration.
-There are some small scuffs and spots of fray to the bottom of the neckline and the waistband, see photos. A couple of tiny pin holes to the back shoulder/neck.
-The backing band on the inside of the waistband is a little bit worn and has some sections where it has been replaced or covered with new ribbon. This can't be seen when worn.
-There are some small scattered water spots and slight marks to the skirt, see photos for examples. I've had this dry cleaned, so the marks that remain have not lifted, but a better dry cleaner might be able to improve these.
-There is also one area of sheen to the back shoulder, possibly a mark from pressing, see photograph. This looks much worse in the photo than in real life as the light reflects against it, it's much less noticeable in normal day light.
Please see all photos and read condition description carefully. Happy to provide more photos if needed. Had this been pristine I would have priced it at £1200, so has been reduced substantially to reflect the slight wear.
