Vintage 1970s 1980's Gunne Sax Dress / Lavender Victorian Style Dress

Wonderful lavender Gunne Sax by Jessica McClintock dress. Late 70s or early 80s. Victorian in style with those enormous puffed sleeves. Fitted bodice with tiny pearl buttons up the front and lace and pearl trim. The sleeves end in a narrow wrist with buttons and more lace trim. The skirt is full, almost a full circle and would be wonderful with a fluffy crinoline under it. I've shown it with just a stuff slip ( not included). The back zips up and there is a sash that ties in a bow in back. Label reads: Gunne sax by Jessica. Acetate with rayon trim. Size tag says its a 9 but this is vintage so do refer to the measurements listed below as vintage sizing is not the same as modern.

Excellent vintage condition. The only thing I've found is a small green mark round the base of the top bodice button. I think its oxidization from the metal base of the button. Fairly well hidden behind the button.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip.
Armpit to armpit across bust: 36"
Waist: 28"
Hips: full
Shoulder to armpit: 8.5"
Shoulder to waist: 16"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 45"
