Title

Courrèges, Brown Wool Dress

Description

A-Line dress in coarse wool twill, lined with acetate. The sleeve is raglan, with a should seam running from neck to sleeve opening, and joining with the bodice in a sharp angle, extending across the body above the breast line in yoke. A bright orange vinyl Courrèges logo is topstitched at center front neck. Side seams are covered with 1.875" top-stitched band of fabric punched with four orange metal snaps on each side, followed by a functional orange plastic heavy-duty zipper (14.5") running along the side seam all the way to high hip. Closure zipper runs along center back and consists of an invisible 19.5" zipper.
