This glamorous maxi dress from Berkertex is the absolute epitome of elegance! With its Parisian-chic style and coppery-bronze rust shade, this breathtaking 1970s garment is sure to turn heads. The bodice has a high neck with gathering just below the collar, and the dolman sleeves come down to voluminous gathering around a 3 1/2" wide bracelet cuff with two fabric-covered half dome buttons. Subtly decorative hand-stitched piping trim adorns the collar and cuffs. The long, dramatic skirt flows from the waist and sweeps at floor length. There is a back zipper fastening and two hook and eye closures on the back collar. The coordinating belt features a large, silver statement buckle.
