From the 1970s, a black jersey knit disco dress with built-in bra and boldly colored, strappy, one-shoulder styling. Yellow, red, and peach straps sweep diagonally across the bodice, front and back, are stitched in place to avoid shifting or twisting, and tie at the left shoulder. Deep bust darts, elasticized waist, thread loops and removable self-fabric belt. Self-lined at bodice. Nicely made. Swishy, A-line skirt. Easy care.
