1980s French Connection grey check slouchy roll neck dress
An unusual and cosy early 1980s dress from French Connection, in soft brushed cotton mix with grey checks against off-white. Wide roll neck and totally unfitted body, with deep armholes for the 3/4 length sleeves. Straight skirt and full button back (stitched close from hip down), it is meant to be worn blouson, with the flat 'waistband' pulled up to upper hip level so bear this in mind with measurements!
Chest flat 25"
Hip below band up to 36" tight
32" around band, which is 20-24" down from mid shoulder
42" mid shoulder to hem
Good condition, I'm not sure the stitching of the back is original, but likely added to stop potential gaping! Small area of handmending at one buttonhole as pictured
