Vintage 1960s dress suit in swirling floral vines of deep peach (looks like taupe) and pink on a pale taupe ground. The substantial fabric has a subtle glow, and the texture resembles damask. Unlined, short-sleeved, jewel-neck sheath dress has princess seamed bodice, five decorative covered buttons on the slim skirt, and a matching belt. Closes at back with metal CO/ED zip and hook&eye. Waist-length, slightly boxy jacket is fully lined and closes with three buttons through bound holes. Beautifully constructed, with attention to detail and lovely finishing. Union made in the U.S.A. From the Tawni W. collection.
