Vintage 1970s maxi dress in dark brown and white gingham checks. The neo-Victorian styling features ruffled bodice with decorative buttons, vertical darts, high neck, and puffed leg-o-mutton sleeves with long, slim, four-snap cuffs. Empire waist nips with self-fabric ties, above a slightly A-line, princess-seamed skirt with deep ruffle sewn to the interior at the hem. Closes at back with long, metal "double Talon" zipper (an old one, no doubt from the seamstress's stash) and three hooks&eyes at the neck. A sweet dress made with loving care. Seams are pinked and zig-zag'd, and hand-stitched in place.
True color is a coffee, not chocolate, brown.
