Gorgeous Janice Wainwright designer dress, I’m pretty sure the dress is unworn as the maker's label marking order number 602 is inside marked as a size 14 and the maker as Linda Satin collar with a low neck and blouson top with dolman sleeves.

In the 70s Janice Wainwright started her own label, ‘Janice Wainwright at Forty Seven Poland Street,’ which carried on until around 1974.
Her Poland-Street-era work has become the signature Wainwright look — Using jersey fabrics, chiffons, and crepes for beautifully stylish bias-cut dresses, fabulously tailored suits, glamorous top, and skirt ensembles.
Around 74 she also began to use embroidery extensively in her work, both in art deco-inspired motifs and intricately designed birds and flowers. From circa 1974, her work began to bear the simpler ‘Janice Wainwright’ label, although sometimes the two labels turn up in the same ensemble, so they must have had a crossover period
