1970s Red Chiffon Victor Costa Maxi

A gorgeous goddess feel, draped chiffon maxi dress that drapes fantastically and has lots of light as a feather fabric in it! It makes this amazing dress be both flattering and dramatic! A orange based red chiffon drapes perfectly over an inner built in dress giving it a wonderfully romantic and exotic feel. The fabric on the exterior has a light cross check pattern worked into it and gives the effect of depth and texture This adds a subtle interest to the dress that is really pretty in person. The sleeves are full and gather in at each wrist with an elastic cuff and the skirt flows to the ground in a swath of lightness. I love the double row if silk satin ribbon that circles the hem. It is a pretty and flattering touch. Its extremely flattering, easy to wear and high on drama. Excellent condition!
