1970s Draped Jersey Janice Wainwright

Everything you look for in a Wainwright piece! It is the ultimate seventies goddess, sexy draped fluid jersey with semi-sheer chiffon insets. It almost caftan like in its cut and will work on a variety of sizes. It slips over the head and settles perfectly into place with a very low V front neckline that has an almost cowled effect. This skims over the body with it's slinky jersey so the movement and drape it creates is killer. Gold lame thread ribbon is used to highlight the shoulders and V front. This ribbon is picked up again on each cuff. You can wear this loose or belt it and make it super short even! The styling possibilities are endless. I love the semi transparent shoulders that add that little subtle sexiness. It is just beautiful and a rarity! Excellent condition

Bust: 20" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13.5-14" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Bodice: 15.5" from top of bust to waist
Skirt: 27" from waist to hem

Unlined made of a fluid black jersey rayon with semi-sheer inset panels. It slips over the head to wear. I was honestly on the fence on whether to out that plunge on the back or front but I thick this is how it was meant - or it was deliberately meant to be able to be worn either way which is perhaps the more logical answer!

Modern Sizing equivalent: SML-MED
