Galanos, Emerald Green Wool Crepe Dress

Title

Galanos, Emerald Green Wool Crepe Dress

Description

Emerald green wool crepe tunic dress lined in emerald green silk charmeuse. Front is asymmetrical with an overlapping panel held along center front by three oversized black acrylic buttons set in stitched buttonholes, and two fabric-covered snaps preventing the panel from sagging. Front bodice is divided by one princess seam opening via a 21" invisible zipper running from hip to shoulder seam. Neck is held in place by three hooks and loops hidden under the overlapping panel. Sleeves are one-piece with 5" invisible zipper closing the cuff tightly. Back panel is devoid of any shaping. All inside edges are encased in 1/8" Hong Kong finish in emerald chiffon.
