Amazing navy suit with all the details of fine design. This is such a well made suit, i'm very surprised to not find a makers tag.I would date this suit to early 1950's with structured styling from the 40's still apparent, but the softer shoulders / sleeve shape coming in, as well as a very classic 50's styling of the dress. The blazer is fitted with multiple darts to create that tiny waist look; sleeves are 3/4 with piped satin at the turned, notched cuffs, and small shoulder pads give structure to the roundness of the dolman sleeves. Peplum is reinforced with interfacing, which keeps the look crisp. Both the blazer and the dress are decorated with rhinestones and pearls. Dress is a fitted shift style with side metal zipper. Neckline and armholes are piped in silk satin piping.
Bodice is fitted, with bust darting, and skirt has double pleats, and kick pleat at the back hem. Dress also has stiff interfacing, waist to hips to add to the structured fit. Fine wool; please check measurements.
Bust: 36 (with some give due to dolman sleeves). This set is in excellent vintage condition, with the only faults being one missing rhinestone on the dress, and very slight wear to the jacket buttons.This item is made of wool.
