1970s Joy Stevens Floral Maxi Dress

This is a pretty Joy Stevens halter dress with a wonderful screened floral print! It is made of an easy to care jersey that has a stunning and bold floral print done in pinks & lavenders. The front of the dress is gathered along a fabric tie that then goes up and around the neck. I have crossed it for the photos, but you can also tie it so that is does not crossed over if you wish. The back is left bare for a sexy hint of skin. The skirt falls to the floor and is cut so that it drapes from just under the bust-line of the dress. This makes it very flattering as it hides all sins. A great dress that can go from beach to market to cocktails with a simple change of shoe! Excellent condition.
