1970s Sequin Oscar De La Renta Dress

This is am amazing and decadent maxi dress! Every square inch is covered in glossy metallic burgundy, flat round sequins in a weightless silk chiffon base. The body of the piece is lined in hand dyed matching fabric and the entire dress is shockingly lightweight. It snaps to close shirt dress style which also allows you to leave the skirt open or closed and control the amount of plunge! The original belt is present and in great condition. The waist nips in and the dress skims the body while the sequins make the entire thing glint and glimmer in the light. Terrific piece in excellent condition and well made as one would expect from Oscar de la Renta!

Fully lined in a matching burgundy silky rayon. through the bodice and skirt. The sleeves are left unlined. Hand finished inside. The original silk satin covered belt is included and is in great shape. There may be a sequin missing here or there but it is extremely minor and you could use ones from inside the hems to replace if you lose any down the road! There is minor discoloration to the inside under each arm but it is freshly and professionally cleaned and this does not show on the exterior.
