Convertible Plunge and Tie Red Jersey Maxi Dress, 1970s


This little red jersey dress is really amazing if for nothing else but the sheer versatility it will provide to you. It is basically a tube of red jersey with a slit up one seam at the skirt and two mile long ties that extend up from that seam. Those ties are miles long and fall almost tot he hem at the back which gives the back its own drama. This gives you the versatility to tie so many ways it's ridiculous. You just step into it and get creative. I tied it a few ways for the photos and just realized as I am writing up this description that you could probably turn it to the side and do a few version of a single shoulder dress and also drop it and tie it at the waist for a long skirt. It is so forgiving on the body and flattering. It's a definite statement maker with that brilliant red color and it is like buying a dozen dresses in one. Add to that a low scooped back that leave your back bare and it is a knock-out. The fabric is a synthetic jersey that is washable, travels exceptionally well and won't wrinkle. I love it. It is fabulous. Excellent condition Made from a single layer of the jersey. It slips on the wear and then you tie it as you wish. The fabric has stretch so it will fit a range of sizes. I have given the comfortable range of stretch when measured flat below. Bust: variable since it has no true side seams and has stretch Waist to hip: 18-20" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: somewhat adjustable but approx 59" from neck to hem and it will vary a little depending on how you tie it at the neck Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-LRG This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
