This vintage 1970s nautical dress is right on trend. Nautical is HUGE right now. This dress is SUPER COOL! I love it. The red, white and blue print maxi dress features a keyhole in the back of the dress. Very sexy and stylish. The ribbon at the waist line is very sweet; it just needs to be tacked a bit. The hem....so sweet too, lace. That doesn't happen today. And it's also a good four inches so if you need to let it out. The dress also comes with a shawl. You know spring and summer nights can still get a bit chilly. I think you could also fold the shawl and fashion it into a hair scarf if you wanted. The dress is amazing and in very good condition.

History/Backstory: A Vintage Virginia find. This dress came from a former dealer/collector. (I think she did a bit more on the collecting side.) I will be listing more of her goodies in the future.

Condition: Very Good. There is some marks around the neckline, both on the outside and inside. I think it's make up. I have not tried to spot clean nor have I had the dress dry cleaned. Please convo if you would like additional photos. One tiny pinhole in shawl. These small flaws do not stand out and they do not take away from the overall appearance and fabulousness of the dress.

Material: No Label. I think it's an acetate.

Care: No Label. My recommendation is Dry Cleaning.


(All measurements are taken with the garment lying flat and all buttons buttoned, zippers zipped....you get the idea. Measurements are doubled where appropriate, i.e. for bust, waist, hips. Measurements are in inches. I still haven't mastered the metric system.)
