Gorgeous 1970s Silk Jersey Floral Print Leonard Halter Dress

This fabulous and sexy 1970s Leonard maxi dress is a find. It is made from his signature silk jersey fabric and this choice of fabric gave these long maxi length dresses the perfect drape and fit. It is that perfect balance of being easy to wear and still staying insanely sexy but without being overtly so. Each of his designs were made from custom designed fabrics and during this time period in particular, they were all the most gorgeous color palettes, like this mix of bright flowers on a black backdrop. I love the fitted halter cut through bodice and the back that is left almost bare. This barely there top perfectly balances the maxi skirt that flows to the floor in a swoop of bias cut silk jersey. There is a good amount of fabric through the skirt which allows for more of that pretty design to be seen whenever you move. I love the V neckline and signature contrasting borders that define the neckline, halter strap and hem. It also runs down the back for a pretty finishing detail. A real little beauty. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a low back back, metal and nylon zipper with two fabric covered buttons and loops at the back of the halter neck. The fabric is a silk jersey and does have some stretch - the measurements given are the comfortable stretch when laying out flat. The fabric is signed throughout. Because there are no true side seams at the bust you do have some range there.

Bust: approx 17" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14-17" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 20-22" flat across from side seam to side seam
Bodice: 18" from neck to waist
Skirt: 39" from waist to hem

Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED
