This incredibly beautiful vintage piece was made for the highly loved Seattle boutique OPUS 204 that began in 1968 and closed its doors in 2007. I urge you to read this wonderfully insightful article written about the store, the owner and some of the women who shopped there. From the SeattlePi: https://www.seattlepi.com/business/article/Retail-Notebook-Seattle-fashionista-closes-1244258.php This iridescent purple silk is midweight yet flowy with a raw spun texture throughout. Asymmetrical button closures, high side slit with loose fitting bracelet length sleeves. It is unlined, does not stretch, and in my opinion looks best worn oversized. The drape, movement, and color is the kind of combination that must be celebrated! Appears unworn, is perfectly clean, sure to be loved by you forever...
