1960s Unusual Wrapped & Tie Printed Yellow Jumpsuit w Full Length Caped Back
This is one of those great little pieces you will only find in vintage. It is so unusual. It is a loose cut jumpsuit and to keep it in place it only has ties and no other closures. To do this it has the most unique design to it that is actually quite clever. The legs are cut wide and easy and the front panel that makes up each side extends and continues up to form the waist and chest of the jumpsuit. It then continues upwards to extend back and over the shoulders so there is a full length caped back that falls behind you. You basically step into the pants and then slip your head through the neck hole at the top and then the back panel falls down your back like a cape. Underneath the cape at the back there are ties that extend out from either side of a very low V. Two more ties extend from other side of the back caped part and you then tie everything together to hold it in place. I have lifted the back to show you how I tied it for one of the shots but I think you could come up with a few different ways to tie it in a way that works best on you. You could even wrap and tie it around you more towards the front. The sleeves are equally as simple but genius. Each is completely open along the bottom but has two little snaps to close. You can wear them more open and caped or snap for more of a true sleeve in feel. It has that classic mix of a bright yellow with pops of tangerine and white that just screams the sixties. I love it. Great condition with a note below
It is fully lined in a bright silky yellow rayon and ties into place as described above. The fabric near the base of the V at the back has been repaired quite a bit but is stable. I have left it as found. Please see the final photo. Everything else on it is in great shape. The fabric is a wash and wear synthetic. The loose and easy cut should allow it to fit a range of sizes
