c.1976 Mac Tac Floral Printed Nylon Jersey Dress w Balloon Sleeves

The Mac Tac label was produced by a parent company called Leonard Sunshine and in terms of print and quality it is right up there with Leonard  or Pucci pieces in my book. This version is lovely with its soft base color and gorgeous floral print. It is made from a fluid nylon jersey that drapes and moves fabulously. The neckline has a deep and sexy plunge front and the waist is defined by the band and attached ties. Each sleeve balloons above the cinched wrist and has lots of fullness. The skirt sweeps to the floor and widens as it nears the hem. I love how the floral print is used to highlight the design of the dress. A scattering of flowers sweeps across the back and just off to the side of the back hem. At the front a large design anchors the skirt at the front as it trails up towards the waist. This is classic 1970s at its best. Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips on. Has an attached tie at the waist to cinch it in as much as you need. The fabric has some stretch. Tagged a vintage 38
