Black is famously hard to photograph, and we've done our best, but this little item was particularly difficult! The Lord Chancellor, who takes most of our photographs, became all unnecessary and had to lie down after the model decided that it isn't - as I happen to believe - a top, but a very, very short dress....admittedly, she wasn't quite showing her - er - underwear, but the LC is an old man and I think it would have been kinder, frankly, to have worn more underneath than she did!
Be that as it may...this is a delightful and very sexy little thing, made from heavy black crepe and lace, the former of which is lined. A-line, it has little cap sleeves, a round neck and a deep lace yoke front and back. The lace is archtypical sixties 'daisy' design.
There are no labels, but it seems to have been professionally made, and is in excellent condition, without a fault as far as I can see.
Designed to fit, rather than just hang, it fastens with a long rear zip and a total of fourteen poppas on the lace at the back...you can see the effect the garment had on the LC, as he was completely unable to work out how these should go, and admittedly it is a little tricky - I don't think you could do yourself up at the back without any help!
It takes an awful lot to get the poor old gent going these days, apparently, but this certainly succeeded - we don't actually have any pictures of it in wear with everything done up as it should, although I hope the photos show it can be done! In terms of size, this is about a modern size 10, possibly a 12: approximate measurements are, bust 37 ins/84 cms; waist 32 ins/81 cms; hips 43 ins/109 cms; length 28 ½ ins/72.5 cms (see? of course it's a top!)
