Soft as a whisper 1970s maxi dress of white cotton voile with light blue floral embroidery and smocking. Would make the perfect Boho wedding dress, as the "something blue" is built right in. Flocked ribbon ties at the V-neck. Elasticized, dolman over-elbow sleeves. Elasticized smocking at waist, and three-tier, full A-line skirt. Lined in a separate layer of white cotton with a camisole-style under-bodice with bust darts and thin, satin ribbon straps. From the Mrs. Richard C. estate.
Last photo shows my friend Robin wearing an identical dress (almost certainly not the one listed here) in March 1978.

Fiber/Care: cotton or a cotton-rich blend, washable
