The ultimate eveningwear piece for the lady who want to feel fabulously dressed up, but prefers pants to dresses: a 1960s wide-leg jumpsuit in sheer, sexy black lace and crepe. The sleeveless, fitted bodice has a scalloped high neck and an unusual, zigzag waist seam. The black floral lace is backed with sheer beige mesh in a manmade fiber (probably nylon), so it is completely see-thru when worn. The wide legs are full from hip to knees, and extra flared from knees to hem. The jumpsuit has a long or “dropped” crotch, for a more flowing and loose fit around the hips (see “Rise” in measurements, for details). The lower half of the jumpsuit is made of unlined, mid-weight crepe, which feels like either rayon, or a rayon/poly blend. The high neck fastens with hooks and eyes, and then the back of the bodice is open to mid-back, where is is closed with a few more tiny hooks. The plastic zipper starts at the waist seam. This fancy, cocktail or evening jumpsuit from the late 1960s is in very good to excellent condition, with one hard-to-see, small mend in the lace, on the back of the left shoulder (see close-up photo). We will include some extra lace fabric with your purchase, which appears to be the former sleeves of the jumpsuit, removed by the previous owner.
