70s Halter Dress Vintage Maxi Ossie/Birtwell Inspired S
A fabulous 1970s vintage halter-style maxi dress, reminiscent of Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell with the masterful combination of graphic black elements with a killer print! From the front, the bodice looks like an empire waist halter top with bands of black forming the armholes and straps - the bra fabric meets and ties in the center with long sashes concealing a daring keyhole. Turn the dress around, and you see a racer back attached to the curving black band. The gored skirt flows in a simple A-line silhouette.
No size label. Measurements taken with dress laying flat - overall, the fabric has a bit of stretch and the bust has additional flexibility via cleavage.
|Bodice length from approximate shoulder to empire waist||11.5"||29|

The black fabric is a synthetic medium weight doubleknit. The print is poly jersey knit, like disco shirt fabric - fantastical orange-to-red poppies and paisley motifs blooming in a starry black night.
