1970s Blue Chiffon Victor Costa Maxi

A gorgeous goddess feel, draped maxi dress that drapes and moves wonderfully because of the light chiffon fabric used to construct it! It makes this amazing dress be both flattering and dramatic! Pretty tones of blue are printed on a light chiffon that drapes perfectly over an inner built in dress, giving it a wonderfully romantic and exotic feel. The fabric on the exterior has a striped pattern worked into it and gives the effect of depth and texture. I love the solid blue used at the hem and cuffs to anchor the design. The sleeves are very full and gather in at each wrist with an elastic cuff and the skirt flows to the ground in a swath of lightness. The original fabric tie cinches in the waist in a pretty and flattering touch. It is extremely flattering, easy to wear and high on drama. Excellent condition!

There is a full under-dress under the top poly chiffon layer - this inner layer is made of a silky blue rayon. The chiffon sleeve and overlay on the bodice are unlined. It closes with buttons and hidden hook & eye at the front. Each sleeve has elastic cuffs.
