1970s Solid Cerise Maxi Dress
Simple, classic, elegant - perfection! Really a rather timeless dress in a solid block cerise colour with a subtle sheen and a back zip fastening. This dress gives a lovely nod to 1940s Hollywood glam styling, as well as the daring plunge neckline of the 1970s. Her flattering empire line and ruched swag under the bust gives the illusion of a narrower waist line.
She is such a versatile dress and could cover most things from holidays, day at the races, wedding guest through to formal black tie! Just change the accessories and you're good to go.
Although we have listed this dress as a size Clara, because of the stretch it will comfortably also fit size Dorothy.
