1970s Janice Wainwright Silver Lurex Dress

Amazing silver metallic very fine light fabric that drapes wonderfully. The entire top portion of the dress is cut on an exaggerated line with huge billowing sleeves set in at the waist line and a squared off neckline. I love that it is actually semi-transparent from the sleeves right to the front panel on the bodice so that just the front is fully covered. Very subtly sexy. The skirt is full and lined. It drapes dramatically to the floor from a high empire waist. The whole dress has a very Medieval Maid Marion feel to it and is in line with that wonderful Janice Wainwright vibe that collectors look for. Presents as a slightly deeper hued silver then photoed. Excellent condition

Lined through the skirt and inner bodice panels. Closes with a back nylon and metal zipper with snaps on each cuffs.
