1970s Miss Casual for Jean Allen Tunic Pure Wool Tweed Belted Waistcoat 34 inch chest
A very versatile belted knitted tunic waistcoat in pure wool and made by Miss Casual for Jean Allen in the 1970s. The waistcoat measures 34 inch chest – waist 34 inches and hips 40 inches – length 27 inches. The A line shape governs the garment and there is some stretch in the knit and there are two pockets. I have paired this with a pure white shirt the tweed is brown and white. I am unsure if this has been worn, however I have laundered it to freshen it up. The lovely leather 70s hat will be a separate listing, but as you can see this really finishes the outfit off.

AN ORIGINAL UNWORN dress from the 1960s pure wool in a unique style depicting a black long sleeve top which extends into the tartan ‘A’ line shape of the lower part of the dress in a size 12 although the original ticket which is attached to the dress shows size 14, in the 1960s this would have been correct but the measurements of today mean this is definitely smaller than a 14. The dress is original and unworn and is in the style of many famous designers of the sixties for example Mary Quant and Pierre Cardin. There is a long hidden zip in the back and the chest measures 36 inches – Waist 32 inches – Hips 38 inches (bear in mind this is to accommodate the shape of the dress) – length 38 inches and shoulder to shoulder 15 inches, Very stylish and a go anywhere dress.
