The pink cotton blend fabric of this late 1960s sundress or maxi dress, similar in style to the work of designer Lilly Pulitzer, is printed with a dark orange, tangerine and white floral pattern. (Almost certainly,  the screen-printed fabric was made by the same supplier used for Lilly P's dresses: Key West Hand Print Fabrics.) The dress has unusual squared-off cutouts under the arms, to each side of the straight neckline, which is held up with skinny orange straps. The straps are very long--long enough to criss-cross at the back of the dress, thread through the loops at the back of the bodice, and then wrap twice around the waist and tie. They could also be worn and tied in other ways; we liked this look, but you can use your imagination for more options. Although there are bust darts, the shape of the bodice is fairly flat in front, so it will fit best on a lady with a smaller (A to B) cup size. The dress has a high side slit on the left and closes in back with a plastic zipper. It is fully lined with coral muslin-type fabric. Overall, the dress is columnar in shape, fairly straight from the bust, through the waist and hips--although the waist can be cinched in by wrapping the straps around it, as shown. It is in very good to excellent condition, with a light mark on the back of the bodice at the top of the zipper placket, unlikely to be noticed when it is worn. The fabric is crisp and the print is pretty. The style of this late 60s dress is very flexible, equally wearable for day or evening. It will be perfect both by the pool, or out to dinner, on your trip to a fabulous tropical resort!
