Vintage Vivienne Westwood Open Back Dress

The construction of this dress is so good (and hard to describe).  Oversized and draping bodice with a drawstring at the neck and an open back.  The bodice ties around the waist from the back (can be tied over the front as shown or hidden under the front) .  Hidden ties at the arms can either tie around the arms to hold the dress on the body (as shown) or to gather the 'sleeves' to create less of a batwing silhouette. The skirt is straight and fitted...contrasting the oversized bodice beautifully.  Such a sexy and dramatic dress and we love that there are multiple ways to wear it.
