1970s Plunge Front Backless Halter Gathered Sides Jersey Dress

This dress is amazing. It is insanely sexy with a halter style front that plunges to just above the waist and has a back that is left completely open and bare. It is made of a liquid jersey in a deep taupe brown that feels amazing on. That fabric choice also drives the design and the draping on the sides. I love how the skirt is cut so that the sides drape in an ascending curve and give the hips an exaggerated volume. It gives the dress extra drama and makes it far more interesting them just having a plain cut skirt. It also has the added bonus of traveling very well. It is the kind of piece you can throw into your suit case and slip on with either flats or heels when you reach some far off destination and be perfectly ready to go. Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips on. Hooks at the back of the neck. Elastic through the waist. The easy fit allows it work on a variety of sizes.
