Gorgeous 1970s Leonard Swirling Print Silk Jersey Maxi Dress

I absolutely love this fabulous 1970s Leonard maxi dress that is made out of his signature silk jersey fabric.  That fabric choice is what gives these dresses the perfect drape and fit. Each of his dresses were made of custom designed fabrics. This one has a wonderful color palette that mixes of taupes, chocolates and greys all done in those glorious swirls from neck to hem. I love the fitted cut through bodice and how each sleeve is cut with a wide bell cuff. The cut allows the dress to hugs your curves and perfectly balance out the skirt that flows to the floor from the low waist seam in a swoop of bias cut silk jersey. The skirt flows out and gradually widens as it nears its hem allowing 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, cuffs and hem. This one even has its original matching fabric sash that you can cinch in and define the waist with. 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.
