Beautiful 1970s Tropical Print Silk Jersey Leonard Maxi Dress

A fabulous 1970s Leonard maxi dress made of his signature silk jersey fabric that gives these dresses the perfect drape and fit. Each of his designs were made of customs designed fabrics and during this time period especially they were all the most gorgeous color palettes like this mix of bright tropical flowers on a deep navy backdrop. I love the fitted cut through bodice and sleeves  that hugs your curves and perfectly balances that wonderful skirt that flows to the floor in a swoop of bias cut jersey. There is an incredible amount of fabric through the skirt which allows for more of that pretty design to be seen whenever you move. I love the high neck and signature contrasting borders that define the neckline, cuff and hem. A real little beauty. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a back, hand set metal and nylon zipper. The fabric is a silk jersey and does have some stretch with the fabric signed throughout.
