About

This is a fabulous hostess feel piece from the 1970s done in a deep ink blue. I love the wide A-line cut skirt that flows to the ground and is actually quite wide as it nears the floor despite the fact that it skims over the hips below the waistline. The waist has a bit of extra definition with the contrasting banding that is again used on each cuff. The sleeves and tie are chiffon so give it a nice light, airy feeling, This also allows the sleeves to be full and poofed The front buttons and the contrast between the top pattern and the solid colored skirt is both slimming and pretty! Excellent condition
