I found it quite difficult to capture the simple elegance of this gown - with its high neck, empire line with the skirt sweeping out from below the bust, long sleeves with narrow elasticated cuffs. It is a thing of beauty 

Vintage 1970s long maxi dress by designer Barry Artist made in a silky soft polyester

Raglan sleeves

Centre back zip fastener with hooks and eyes to fasten the high neck 

Long sleeves, quite full and ending in an elasticated wrist

Excellent condition - hardly (if ever) worn 

The seam below the bust is intended to sit higher than the wearers natural waist, a few inches below the bust 
Skirt flares out from this seam into a full swishy skirt
