Original 1970s 70s Vintage Burgundy Velvet Halter Neck Jumpsuit
This gorgeous jumpsuit was made from burgundy velvet in the 1970s. It has a classic disco vibe with slightly flared legs and a tied halter neck. The sharp V neckline shows just the right amount of cleavage and this would look fabulous accessorised with a huge belt to nip in the waist. Inside, there is a maker’s label for Brentwood.
There is some stretch to the fabric making measurements flexible. We have shown below the garment measurements relaxes and at full stretch.
Rise: approx 11” but there is no waist seam
The jumpsuit is in very good condition with no issues to note.
This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.
They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:
1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits
2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)
They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.
We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
