1970s Incredible Silk Jersey Leonard Maxi Dress

What a fabulous 1970s Leonard caftan feel maxi dress that has been done in the most gorgeous palette of bright pop of color on a black silk jersey backdrop. I love the loose cut through the skirt and body that flows to the ground and gives it that loose and easy feel. It  has elastic through the waist so you do get a suggestion of shape and then it also has its original belt that you can use to cinch in the waist if you prefer more definition. The sleeves are incredible and are cut wide and full giving the dress a beautiful airy feel. Each is extremely full and billow out until they narrow in at each elastic wrist cuff. The entire edge of the upper bodice is elastic so you can war it as a soft scoop or completely off the shoulders to make it a little more sexy. Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips on. Each sleeve has elastic at the cuff and elastic runs through the neckline. The fabric of the body is all a silk jersey and has stretch.
