We love vintage Albert Nipon dresses and this one is so pretty! The luxe 100% silk fabric is red with a black leaf print. The dress is gently pleated and has long bishop sleeves that are gathered at the shoulders and a black yoke. The dress closes with buttons down the center back seam and there are button closures on cuffs. There are shoulder pads for slight structure, and yes, there are pockets!
Labeled size 8, this was made in Hong Kong in the late 1970's or early 1980's. Estimated modern day US size: 8/10 but please use the measurements as a guide.
If you aren't familiar with vintage Nipon pieces, it's important to know that Pearl Nipon, Albert's wife was the head designer for the brand. She knew how to design for women and used the best fabrics and fabulous colors and prints in her pieces! You can read more about her in Lisa's blog post.
