60s/70s Navy Embroidered Maxi Dress - lg, xl

SKU: 00404-001

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 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 zip, 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.*
