Vintage 60s plus size black maxi dress cocktail party formal

This dress is truly beautiful and graceful. It has soul and presence. It reminds me of Aretha Franklin or a great gospel singer's dress.

***Please note that any white marks in photos were from my camera and not on the actual garment**

From an expensive specialty plus size store that has been in business here for as long as I can remember.
Union label in lower back of dress.
The dress has a square neck, is sleeveless, zippered neck with hook and eye closure. The bust is darted and the dress is seamed down the sides of the front in a slimming fashion.
The sheer overlay is attached. It has a one button opening in the back. Overlay comes to a point in the front and back of dress.
Both the dress and the overlay have sparkly gold white black trim. It is a sophisticated gold sparkle. The dress is a soft black mid weight fluid polyester.

This would be an excellent choice of dress for a wedding, a gala party, a dinner,church function, etc.
