I don't think my photos do this stunning Christian Dior Boutique Paris suit justice. I didn't have a very cooperative model! The suit is magnificent using nubby black and white fabric that can only be handwoven. Exquisite hand beading along the neckline and front, pockets and sleeves. The jacket is slightly fitted at the waist with 3/4 sleeves. Very slight soft shoulder pads so the fabric will keep its shape. Lining is rich black weighty satin Large buttons are pieced black horn. The jacket closes with 2 large snaps. Notice the cut away on the bottom of the jacket - fabulous and very flattering.
Straight skirt with center back invisible zipper and short slit. Skirt is lined in the same lush satin as the jacket and has the same Dior label as the jacket.
Gorgeous hand beading is 1" on the front/neck and 1-1/2 on pockets and sleeves. Small fringe on the pocket and sleeve beading. A combination of sequins, jet faceted beads, white tube glass beads and as an accent very pale pink seed beads. The touch of pink is very subtle and sheer genius.
Jacket: Shoulders - measured flat - 17-1/2" Bust: 36" all around
Back length" - 20"
Sleeve length: 18" (3/4" sleeves)
Skirt: Waist: 30" all around
Hips: 38" all around
My guess is that is a size 8 or slightly larger. Excellent vintage condition. No holes, stains, odor. Lining is pristine. The lining is probably slightly smaller than my measurements.
The jacket can be worn without the skirt. The woman I got it from wore it with jeans and high heels. If only this suit fit me!
