Dreamy late 1960s / early 1970s Victorian Revival purple floral print maxi dress featuring a high, lace-trimmed neck, empire waist, puff sleeves and a flowing skirt. Fulfill all your cottagecore dreams. I love finding this style of dress in airy cotton versus stuffy polyester! Unlined, sheer, back zipper closure + hook & eye at neck + snaps at sleeve cuffs.
