Red polka dots off-white 70s maxi formal dress XS-S




This off-white 1970s maxi dress is adorned with fuzzy red flocked polka dots! The lightweight, gauze-like fabric is a poly or poly blend. The bodice has skinny straps above the straight neckline. The neckline is trimmed with white nylon organza ruffles with red satin edging, and the same red satin trims the wide flounce at the hem. The full skirt flares out from the fitted high waist. Elastic at the neckline and empire waist seam should make for a comfy, somewhat flexible fit. This elastic has a fair amount of stretch left in it, although it appears a bit less stretchy than it may have been originally, from normal wear. The dress is semi-sheer, although it is fully lined in a second layer of the same off-white, gauze-like fabric--but without the fuzzy polka dots. This fun 70s formal or party-ready maxi dress is in very good, totally wearable condition. In addition to the aforementioned slightly loose elastic, the dress is a tiny bit yellowed along the high waist seam, and has some threads at the waist that may indicate that some trim or sash has been removed by the previous owner (see close-up photo). Neither is likely to be noticed when this sassy and sweet, red and white polka dot 70s maxi dress is worn.
