The mandarin styled neckline draws together along the front with button and loop fastenings, with matching covered crochet buttons, that descend along the front of the fitted crochet bodice. The simple shoulder line, joins the wide pleated nylon bishop sleeves, that draw together along wide crochet cuffs finished with button and loop fastenings. The cinched in waistline, draws in with a threaded crochet belt tie that can be drawn in and tied in a bow. The elegant nylon shirt, gathered in drawn pleats beneath the waistline and drapes into a pleated skirt, finished with a tier of gathered nylon, completing this dress in an iconic 1970's bohemian design. The crochet bodice and nylon sleeves are not lined. The skirt is lined in nylon.
