1970s Robert Morton Bamboo Maxi Dress

A fantastic bright and cheerful kimono inspired dress that has a lovely bamboo print running though it. The fabric is so easy to wear - its that slinky lingerie weight nylon jersey that has just enough weight so it feels good on and not cheap. This was probably originally meant as a hostess piece -t hat grey area between lingerie and greeting guest in your home but it can absolutely be worn as a proper dress now! The skirt flares out from the high set waist in a surprisingly wide A-line so you get lots of movement. The waist nips in from a little definition just under the bust. The front has an unusual drape over the square neckline and the sleeves are fantastic crazy wide kimono feeling and completely dramatic! They are almost a full circle at the ends. Appears to have never been worn and in excellent condition.
