1970s Janique Sunray Pleat Heart Print Dress
Stunning fresh white dress from the late 70s from the Janique label, made in England.
Ditsy heart print in red, green and blue on a white base with shadow striping that was popular in this period. A stand-up mandarin collar has contrast red piping that follows down into an open 'V' that then comes together and travels down as a double pipe to the waist.
The piping is also featured on the shoulders giving an epaulette effect.
The skirt of the dress falls into sunray pleating creating a swoop and fullness also synonymous of the time. The fabric has some stretch and the waist is elasticated; it is slightly sheer and you may wish to wear a slip underneath. There are original thread belt loops but no original belt. We have paired this with one of our standard elasticated belts in red. (not included)
