Vintage early/mid 70s,
Gorgeous brown and cream maxi dress with kitten print pattern, purrrfect!....and so cute!

This maxi dress is so typical of the early to mid 70s. It is lovely quality and it looks like it has just come out of a high street shop. It has a chocolate brown background with a really unusual kitten print in cream. The print is of a cute little kitten lying on its side under two flowers and leaves. This pattern is repeated throughout the fabric and because it is in a fine line it is quite subtle. Any cat lover will adore this vintage dress.. There is no manufacturers label but the care label is still on it. This leads us to believe it is made from 50% poly cotton mix because of the washing instructions and the feel and appearance of the fabric. The fabric is medium weight and has a smooth finish. There are straps to the shaped bodice with original button detail. Two lengths of crochet run down the bodice either side for added effect. It is a flattering empire line and the fabric falls to two lightly gathered tiers which are separated by a lovely crocheted lace insert of 2“. Tiers were very popular in high street fashion at this time and this is very typical.
There is a long secure 16” brown metal zip at the back of the dress. Measurements approx. across the back 16 ½” ,across empire line under the bust 15”, back of empire line to the hem 44”, front of neckline to the front hem 48”. This is about a size 10 or small 12. If you are a larger size but have a narrow top half then check your measurements as because of the fullness of the dress below bust level it should be fine. It is approx. 42” around the hips which allows for the fullness and gather of this style. This dress is in excellent condition with no signs of wear. It will delight any who likes cats and even if you are not particularly a cat fan it will be a super addition to your 70s collection of vintage fashion.
