1970s Janice Wainwright Jersey Set

Wonderful, early 1970s skirt and top set from one of my favorite designers - Janice Wainwright. Both pieces are constructed from a lightweight knit jersey. The top has a slightly dolman sleeve and a boat neck cut top that is all skinny arms and tapered through the waist. The fit is fantastic and it drapes beautifully! The skirt has an elastic waist and attached ties so you can style the pieces slouchy, loose and layered or cinched & fitted. I adore the color blocking - a true jet black is paired with a deep burgundy and a chocolate brown. The set is labeled with her earliest label and it is in excellent condition. A wonderfully modern feeling piece that is surprisingly fresh and fashion forward.

Bust: approx 18-20" flat across the back the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: approx 14" flat across the back from side to side
Bodice length: 26" from mid-neck at the back to bottom hem

Waist: 14" flat across but it has elastic so will stretch quite a bit
Hips: 24: flat across from seam to seam un-stretched
Length: 30" from top of waist to bottom hem

Both pieces are unlined. The top slips over the head to wear and the skirt also slips on. Double ties are attached on either side of the skirt waist and can be left hanging, wrapped or tied as you wish. There are hidden side pockets in the skirt. The sizing is somewhat flexible

Modern Sizing equivalent: SML-MED (6-10)
