Here's a fun vintage 1970s maxi dress of a really cool combination of fabrics: sparkling lurex black and silver paisleys on the skirt and belt, with ribbed black and silver "sweater vest" cut-in style bodice, and shimmering white with silver for the inset with a long pointy collar!
This is a sleeveless full length dress, most likely designed as a prom or formal event dress...would be SO outstanding worn with huge 70s platform shoes.
bust: laid flat only 27", but EASILY stretches to 34"+
waist line: laid flat about 23", stretching up to 26"
neck point to (cut-in) shoulder point: 3.5"
neck point to waistline: 14.5" long
neck point to HEM: about 57" long
about 7" below waistline (theoretical hip): about 35-36"
These measurements translate to a modern size 4, that is VERY long (we're sure platform shoe height was allowed for this!)
This has a self-belt of the paisley fabric with a HUGE (2 and 3/4" by 2 and 5/8") shiny silver buckle, but the end hole has been blown/pulled out (we've included an image for you to inspect). There are thread belt loops on each side and in the center front (that buckle is heavy). When worn with the dress, it gives a somewhat empire appearance to the dress silhouette.
There are a couple of insignificant pulls in the ribbed bodice, they don't show up when on a body. Also we noticed some teeny tiny spot on the white inset of the bodice, we've included an image for you to inspect, they are very difficult to find and are not readily visible when worn.
If this were to be worn on stage or in a darkened nightclub, the majority of those issues would not be visible, the only exception being that end hole of the belt...that would need to be mended in order to disguise it, or, solve that problem completely by simply by wearing it with a wide black patent belt instead. Pricing low, accordingly.
