- 1950's Rudi Gernreich Walter Bass Stretch Wool Knit Sheath
One of those classic early Gernreich little black dresses. Elegantly styled ribbed wool sweater dress. High neckline and cut in shoulders. No closures... just pull over the head and go. "Rudi Gernreich design for Walter Bass," label.
Size: Because of the nature of the ribbed wool knit it has some flexibility but best in the ballpark of about 35-36" bust, waist is not as fitted as it looks (around 30"), hips are around 36". Again, there is a fair amount of flexibility but I wouldn't overdo it! Approximately 40 1/2" from shoulder to hem.
Condition: There are a few slightly pulled threads. There is one tiny hole at the level of the left hip. It's not that bad and it can be rewoven, I just don't have anyone here to do it.
