A goddess-style evening gown in dark chocolate brown polyester jersey, this 1970s halter-neck maxi dress has a fabulous disco diva vibe. The tubular-shaped gown has a high front slit in its narrow skirt—all the better for dancing! The outermost layer of fabric forms a crisscross wrapped halter neckline, which buttons behind the neck, over the otherwise strapless bodice. This halter neck/upper bodice section is the only part of the dress that is single-layered. The rest of the dress has 2 layers of the same lightweight jersey fabric—the inner layer functioning as a lining, to keep the dress dress from being semi-sheer. As you can see from my photo with this outer layer pulled aside, the strapless under-bodice fastens with a plastic zipper at the center front, and has tiny bust darts for shaping. This slinky, sexy, Studio 54-worthy 70s evening dress is in excellent condition, with no issues to note. The dress is proportionally smallest across the top of the strapless bodice, so please check that measurement carefully. It is about 1 inch too small in that area to fit above my 34B bust, for reference.
