Very interesting appliqué work has been done to this dress. In a sort of bold Aztec design, down the front and framing the face on the oversized collar. Here we belted it with a contrasting color belt right under the bands of color which extend down to the floor. We've also tried this tunic tucked into a long skirt with the cotton strips tied around as a belt. This is obviously an interesting one of a kind piece some creative designer dreamed up back in the day.
