A maxi dress retailed by the high street department store chain Debenhams in the 1970s. This full length dress is in red polyester trimmed with cream coloured machine-made lace on the bodice, collar and cuffs. The sleeves are short, puffed and set in. The bodice has a keyhole neckline which ties under a mandarin collar. The lace trim reflects the romantic styling popular in the 1970s. The skirt terminates in a 350mm deep flounce or frill. The dress fastens with a zip at the rear, and ties at the back with wide bands of the red fabric set into the side seams at the waist.
