Les Copains Italy green satin shirt dress XL VTG 1990s Lanvin Hottest Day Frock
I have a cherished collection of dresses for super-hot days that share these qualities. They're light, they don't show sweat, they're easily washed, they barely touch my body and they're long enough that no one thinks about what you are or are not wearing underneath. Plus, and this is important, they are impossibly chic looking. Blowsy but substantial enough not to fly up. Not distinctly from a time period, like tops with center pleats and plaid pants are. Made in Italy in a rayon twill with distinct shine.
Has side seam pockets and engraved mother of pearl buttons captured in loops rather than holes. 46 around at the underarms, waist, hips and hem. 39 from nape to hem. Raglan sleeves (no shoulder seams) end in cuffs 17 past the collar/neck. The sewing form measures 38-30-39, FYI. I avoid future relations with people who send things back worn or because they didn't read the description.
