Kenzo Paris VTG 1970s paisley challis wrap dress very full skirt 38 FR

This dress just kills me. The skirt is so very full but it drapes so sweetly that you dont realize how much cloth is there. It is way too small for me but I bought it anyway, figuring I could get the extra inches I need out of it by moving the buttons and reshaping the waist. And then I realize what a masterwork it is and I cant cut or alter it.

The fabric is a 2-die-for oversized paisley print on a fine wool challis. The cloth alone is a miracle of 1970s Northern Italy weaving. It is fluid and drapey but has body to it like a broadcloth.

The only closure is the 5 overlap at the waist secured by two buttons. In my dreams, I wear it with slick black tights and a tank underneath and let it blow open. I dont think it was ever worn. The waist is currently at 26. You could move the buttons which appear to be in the original position, or you could see where the bodice and skirt are both gathered into the waist seam and release the gathering to gain a couple more inches. Slash pockets on the side front. 37 around the underarms, 26 around waist, hips free size. 48 from nape to hem, with the waist seam at 17 from the nape of the neck. No shoulder seams; the wrist is 28 from the neck.

A little over 10 feet around the hem, more than 120. I provide all this information so that you can get it and love it, so I hope you use it. Please ask any questions that helps me write better listings. The sewing form measures 38-30-39, FYI.
