Women's Designer Suit - Black Tone on Tone

This nice little suit has a timeless design - we believe it dates to the early 1980s as that is when we find reference to the designer, Catherine Carr. The suit features a pencil skirt and hip length, buttonless jacket - very basic style. What makes this set special is the fabric. Some have referred to it as 'faille'. We think it is better described as having a tone-on-tone black woven pattern. The fabric feels like a light-weight version of taffeta. The jacket is fully lined, and the skirt is partially lined with the lining ending below hip level.

This suit is in very good condition - no tears, rips, stains, frayed spots, etc. There is no size label, but this is probably about a 4-6. Approximate measurements are: Shoulders - 14" Jacket length - 22" Bust - 37 - 38" Arm length - 21" Waist - 25" Hips - 38" Skirt length - 26"
