60s/70s Navy Embroidered Maxi Dress

SKU: 00404-001
Sorry, this item has sold.

From the late 60s or early 70s, a navy blue and white maxi hostess dress with wonderful texture.

  • Shirtwaist-style bodice with two decorative buttons.
  • Bodice is a fairly sheer lattice knit.
  • Long sleeves have two-button cuffs.
  • Straight skirt is a linen-texture weave completely embroidered with "wooly" braid, ending in a fun fringe.
  • Unlined.
  • Closes in back with metal CC zipper, plus three hooks&eyes at the collar.
  • Union made in the U.S.A.

Labels: only the 1963-'74 ILGWU tag and a style-number tag remain

Fiber/Care: no tags, but feels like a combination of nylon, linen (perhaps rayon), and acrylic, dry-cleaning recommended

Condition: very good, with only a few tiny snags and minor fuzziness here and there. the original belt is missing, and we've removed the thread loops so you can go without if preferred.

*We've had this maxi dress professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear.*
