1970s Metal Ring Metallic Silk Maxi Dress

A gorgeous silk organza maxi dress with an amazing print that has bits of gold thread worked through it! The bodice is fitted with long sleeves and a high neckline. The skirt flows to the floor from the waist with lots of beautiful fabric in it. The pattern is subtle but with those pretty pops of coral to highlight the flowers of the print. I love the bit of gold that is woven through the fabric. It really allows the light to catch it as you move for a subtle nit of glitz. When on it is light and easy to wear but there is weight to it at the same time because of the metal ring detailing that is done around the neck and the waist. These rings are carried down each side of the hip as well. Each is secured like a little doorknocker to a gold metallic thread braiding. It gives the dress a nice polished and finished feel and a little extra detailing that works! Excellent condition

Shoulders: 15"
Bust: 17.5" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13-13.5" flat across the back from side seam to side seam

The dress is fully lined in a fine nude net through the bodice and black synthetic crepe in the skirt. The sleeves are unlined. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. There are two rings missing - one near the zipper and one right at the back near the side seam. Because of the placement of the rings you don't notice this at all when it is on. It is only mentioned for accuracy.
