Classically elegant vintage gown and jacket
1 in stock
Classically elegant vintage floor-length gown with jacket. This has a Jackie Kennedy look to it—gracefully understated but oh so flattering.
The dress is sleeveless with a slightly elevated waistline, accented by decorative faux bow at front and wide flowing skirt. Closes with back zipper.
The matching long-sleeved jacket has a short upturned collar and simple front tie closure. Green stitching at the dress’ neckline and the jacket’s sleeves and down its front is subtly but purposely visible.
Vogue Paris Original labels—I believe this is a home-made ensemble created from a Vogue Paris Original pattern. It came from the home of a very skilled seamstress who did alterations for a prominent Detroit retailer in the 1960s and 1970s.
The fabric is a luminous jacquard that dramatically changes color from green to bronze in the light, with a delicate green and bronze flower and leaf design.
The gown measures 14 inches across the shoulders, 18 inches across underarms, 15 inches across waist. Hips free. Total length is 53 inches from shoulder to hem. This was made for a tall woman, but could be shortened quite easily.
The jacket is 15.5 inches across shoulders, and 18 inches across underarms when closed.
A lovely ensemble.
