1960s Saks Fifth Avenue Ivory Lace Wide Legged Crop Pant & Matching Crop Top
This is such a great little summer outfit and the type of thing that you only ever see with vintage. It has its original Saks Fifth Avenue label in it but no other label to give us an idea on who it would have been by. It is a two piece set and these cropped pant and top sets were THE thing to wear at the height of that early seventies flower power hippie movement. The pants are cut with an extra, extra wide leg and they have a slightly cropped feel to them depending on your height. By the time they reach the hem each pant leg is a full 44" around. The waist is more on the generous side and set a little low. This allows you to wear it more low slung on the hips. The top is cropped and it is cut to be fitted to the bust. The short length of it shows off a bare expanse of skin between the hem and the waist of the pants. It buttons down the front with little round pearl looking buttons and loops. The sleeves are cut to slightly pouf out above their buttoned cuffs. The pants are not lined and are slightly transparent all the way up the waist. To make them wearable there is a built in bottom that is made out of a nude stretch lingerie jersey that is completely opaque. The fabric that it has been made out of is a synthetic ivory lace on a cream chiffon and I love the play of it being slightly see through while you are still covered underneath where it counts. It is very unusual and killer on. Excellent condition with a minor note below
The top is lined in a white organza through the body and the sleeve are unlined. The pants are unlined with a built in inner bottom that has the cut of a 1960s bikini bottom. The inner bottom is made from an opaque nude stretch jersey. The top closes with a series of buttons at the front and the pants zip to close. The back bottom seam of the top has elastic so its has a small range it will stretch to. There is a slight darkening to the lace near some of the seams but the inner gusset is fresh and clean and looks to have never been worn.
