1970s Jack Bryan Layered Coral Jersey Full Length Maxi Dress

These 70s jersey dresses are always a favorite and when I find a great one like this one is, I snatch it up for the shop. The dress is made from a well done synthetic jersey and this fabric choice gives it really great movement and drape. This fabric also held color very well and the gorgeous coral this dress is finished in shows that off to full advantage. The inner dress is a simple sheath that gradually widens out as it nears the hem. Anther layer sits over that and then a single panel is attached at one side of the from tot form the three layers you see on the curved side. That one side curves up and around from the hem and forms a pretty line that goes right to the neckline. This also hides an open slit that shows a flash of leg when you sit or walk and gives the dress a touch of shape as it flares out at the hem. The dress is suspended from the shoulders  from two skinny little straps made from the same fabric. On one side of the neckline sits a pretty fabric flower in the exact same shade. The flower adds to the illusion that the dress is wrapped around you and that it is the flower that is holding the dress in place. It's a great and easy dress to wear that can easily go from the beach to day wear to night with a change of styling. Excellent condition

The innermost layer is unlined and the dress closes with a side metal and nylon zipper. The fabric does have some stretch and the loose and easy cut will allow it to fit a variety of sizes. The color is just a touch more saturated in person.
