1970s Black Jersey One Shoulder Tiered Jumpsuit
This is a sexy and easy to wear one shoulder, black jersey jumpsuit. This is the kind of design that would have ruled the night clubs of the seventies and it has a sexy, easy way about them. It is made from an easy to wear and care for black jersey that moves well and draped well once on the body. The legs are cut wide and full with a slight flare. Under the tiers, the interior part that you don't see, the waist is defined so it sits well once on. There are two panels of fabric with a ruffled edge finish to the hem that brings to mind the work of Stephen Burrow. This was probably a "knock off" more, inexpensive alternative to his work since this would be from the same time period. These panels sit on an angle and drape from the shoulder to cascade down over the front and back. Each ends in a tie at the top pf the shoulders so you just tie this into place. This really hides any flaws and makes you feel tall and skinny. It's the perfect , go with everything black and the jersey travels perfectly. Throw it on for day with flats or wear sky high heels at night - it is a fabulous versatile piece. Excellent condition.
Unlined and it closes with a side set zipper. It ties the top of the shoulder to close. the fabric has stretch. Note that the pants were let down at some point to gain length and you can see the slightest fold mark. The hem is finished so I have left as is bit you could easily shorten ti back if you need to.
