A gorgeous maroon chiffon loose fitting midi dress from 70’s British designer Janice Wainwright. This dress pre-dates 1974, as it has her earlier "Forty Seven Poland Street" label. She was renowned throughtout the 1960s, where she worked for Simon Massey and later for her own label designs often constructed of fluid jersey, chiffon and embroidery. This dress has a two layers of ruffles at the hem and the ¾ sleeves have ruffles at the ends. It also features her trademark colourful Art Deco inspired embroidery on the sheer top panel. A really fun piece in pristine condition. The bust area is not generous and so this dress is best for size US 4 or UK 8 but will fit one size smaller too.
Maximum bust: 94cm/36"
Sleeve length: 43cm/17"
