1970s Wrap Tie Front Holly's Harp Maxi Dress

Supermodel length, spectacular silk jersey Holly's Harp gown in a brilliant emerald green. This is so well made and feels so substantial and yet still slinky and sexy at the same time! A real marvel of construction! The skirt falls form the waist in a long, dramatic swoop that gets wider as it nears the floor. It skims over the hips in a very lean fashion and then there is just yards of fabric by the time you reach the hem! The sleeves are slim and long. The front is just spectacular as well - each side of the bodice extends into a very long jersey tie and then you can wrap these as you wish to create a fully covered feel, a very low, sexy plunge or a keyhole of flesh just above the waist! It is fabulous! Excellent condition and very rare.

Lined in a second layer of the same fabric through the skirt only. It closes with a low front zipper that starts just above the waist seam. The top wraps and ties and you can tie it a couple of different ways. The fabric does have some stretch and is cut on the bias. In some of the photos the color seems to change on parts of the dress but that is the lighting - there is no issues with the color on the actual piece in person.
