Vintage 1970s Hot Pants Dress Multicolour Zig Zag Knit Sz M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a vintage two piece early 1970s hot pants dress.  The set is knit in a zig zag patterned synthetic fabric.  This 1970s hot pants dress has full cut sleeves, has a rounded neckline that ties at the neck to form a peek-a-boo front and has a smocked elasticized waist.  The skirt of the dress is slit at the front.  The hot pants shorts are made in a simple, short style and do up with a nylon zipper at the front.  Neither the dress nor the hot pants are lined - due to the open knit, the fabric is a little revealing.
