We love beautiful prints, and Diane Freis had a passion for prints as well! This vintage dress is in a great floral print in shades of turquoise, purple, red, pink, and green. We especially love the 3/4 length sheer puff sleeves with elastic cuffs. The dress has an elastic solid turquoise waistband that can be worn at the hip or higher with the belt for a blouse like effect. The same solid turquoise fabric trims the square v-neck style neckline.
The center front seam has a box pleat with buttons. The back of the center seam also has a box pleat and there is a teardrop opening with 2 covered buttons at the neck. There are shoulder pads for slight structure and the dress comes with its original matching fabric belt.
Belt colors and fabric are slightly different than the print on the dress (this is intentional and part of the style)
Dress is in excellent condition - the belt Belt has some residue left from what appears to be an attached velcro strip. It has stained the floral side of the belt as well as the under layer. Estimated size: as with many Diane Freis dresses, this fits a range of sizes S-XL Made in Hong Kong in the 1980's.
