Early 1940's Three Piece Evening Ensemble With Sleeveless Dress Jacket & Purse

Wonderful early 1940's three-piece evening ensemble includes a strapless chiffon dress with full taffeta lining, a richly embellished, two-tone crepe jacket and a matching drawstring purse. The elegant dress has a boned bodice with spaghetti straps, a pattern of wide criss-crossing tucks at the bust that continue around to the plunging back and a piped seam at the waist above a flowing, four-panel skirt. Stylishly cropped and opulently embellished, the mauve crepe jacket has applied bands of yellow crepe trimmed in blue braided cord and decorated with scrolled "trees" of gold metallic and silk braid, carnelian colored disks and melon-fluted and spiraled gold-tone beads. The matching purse has the same combination of crepe fabrics and embellishments and has a double drawstring/strap handle and fabric-covered weights at the bottom. The dress closes with a side zipper and all three pieces are in excellent uncleaned vintage condition, strong and ready to wear with a few small age spots or unevenness of color on the jacket and a couple of small "bites" to the purse's strap handles. The jacket measures an unexpanded 17-inches long with a 38 bust and 32 waist, the dress measures 57-inches long with a 38 bust and 28 waist.
