1970s Multi Color Striped Metallic Knit Maxi Dress

I absolutely adore this dress and am already jealous of the girl that will be able to wear it. It's that ultimate seventies sexiness with its shot through with lurex thread knit fabric and sleek to the floor lines! The fabric is amazing - super light weight knit with a multitude of colors worked through the fabric in varying thicknesses to create the amazing design you see. I love the fitted upper bodice with its long sleeves and tiny stripes that tops the maxi length skirt with its wider banding of metallic stripes to the hem. The entire dress has a subtle glimmer and is wonderful! Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The fabric has stretch.
