Power to the purple in this Pucci-style vintage 1960s Jaki K dress. Jaki K was a Sydney label making clothing in the 1960s and 1970s. The fabric (unlabelled, but a type of polyester) has a luscious silky and glimmering sheen, making this dress feel super slinky and drape beautifully. It has a 1920s flapper-style row of pleats at the base of the garment. The neckline features three key-hole cuts. Dress closes with a zipper at the rear and a single hook-and-eye catch. Dress has an SSW sizing but will best fit a modern-day Australian size 6 to 8. Please check measurements below. Noted flaws: in places, there are some fine moth-holes to the fabric (see pictures) although they cannot be detected when worn. One of the sleeve hems appears to have been hand-stitched over time which is not technically a flaw and cannot be seen.
