1970s Victor Costa Turquoise Wash & Wear Jersey Tank Dress

Victor Costa was particularly great at taking the popular designs of the day and making versions that were more affordable but still a good quality. This particular dress is a great example of his work during the 1970s. It is made from a solid turquoise colored jersey that drapes well and moves with you. It has long, lean lines and a fantastic, easy to wear shape. The front and back are scooped like a traditional tank top with skinny little straps. It has a sleek, fitted shape through to the waist and then the skirt flares out gently as it nears the hem. Between the fabric and the slight stretch of the jersey, you really get a tremendous easy feeling dress that still has impact. Added bonus for it being wash and wear. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips on to wear with no closures. The fabric has some stretch. The color in person is completely even and a touch better and brighter turquoise then how it photoed. The fabric has stretch and should fit a variety pf sizes
