1970s Vintage Albert Capraro Poly Chiffon Retro Ruffles Pleats Peasant Dress

What a lovely peasant dress! Having worked for Oscar de la Renta for 8 years, it's easy to see how Albert Capraro's design and styling of this dress harkens back to the training that comes from that fashion house.

With the ruffled neckline, sheer sleeves and flowing pleated skirt. Add to the feminine styling the retro print and keyhole bodice, giving it some edge, it's a lovely, chic and statement-making romantic dress.

Label: Albert Capraro

The dress has an inner attached lining that is slightly creamy in color while the chiffon over dress is a truer white.

The dress closes down the front with tiny snaps at the bodice and a nylon zipper at the waist. The chiffon dress snaps closed to conceal the presence of the zipper. The fabric is synthetic poly or nylon. It is not silk.

Condition:
*A few of the tiny snaps down the front are loose and need to be stitched back into place.
*There is a tiny hook at the waist, and the loop thread is fractured and will need restitching/replacing.
*The designer label is attached only at one corner and will need to be restitched/secured at the other corners so it isn't dangling.
*The belt, where the narrow ties are attached to the wider part of it, is weakening on one side.

Measurements:
The size tag states size 6 but it is an XS, see measurements below. This dress has a tiny waist.
Bodice 34" Measurement taken with edges touching but the bodice opens up giving a few more inches of space in the bust if you wish to show cleavage.
Waist 24"
Hips 35" Measurement taken of the interior attached slip. The chiffon outer dress is much looser
Length 45"
