1970s Robert David-Morton Balloon Sleeve Dress

This is a great seventies piece with lots of great detailing. The fabric is a washable poly jersey which makes it easy to travel with and very comfortable to wear (and dance in). The skirt is swingy and sexy and is set just a touch high into the waist. The bodice has an amazing draped and gathered effect. In addition is is cut wide and low so you get a hint of collar bone showing when you wear it. Each sleeve is cut full above its elastic gathered wrist for a wonderful ballooned affect. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a back metal and nylon zipper. Elastic at each cuff.
