A devoré or “burnout” technique creates the bright floral pattern on the on the sheer white chiffon of this 70s party dress with matching shawl. The hot pink, orange, purple, and yellow poppies of the floral design are accented with satin ribbon trim at the tea-length hem. The same ribbon is used for the wide shoulder straps, and to trim the top of the bodice. The fitted tank-style bodice has vertical seaming for shaping and flexible plastic boning at the side seams. The skirt is pleated at the waist seam, to add fullness. The lightweight, sheer polyester and rayon blend devoré chiffon is fully lined with white polyester taffeta. The long rectangular shawl is unlined. The dress fastens in back with a plastic zipper. This brightly-colored and beautiful 1970s floral party dress is in very good condition, with a few tiny spots on the front of the skirt and a few pinholes in the shawl from storage (see close-up photos) that are unlikely to be noticed when it is worn.
