Vintage 70s Purple Sequin Suit - 1970s Lillie Rubin Maroon Violet Sequined Jacket & Skirt Ladies Size M

Age: 1970s

Makers Label: The Gilberts for Tally New York

Retailer label: Lillie Rubin. Lillie Rubin was a specialty shop that offered evening gowns and special occasion wear (courtesy of the Vintage Fashion Guild label resource)

Union label: ILGWU "red, white and blue" label used between the years 1974 and 1995

Description: This is a fully sequined two piece suit comprised of a jacket and long skirt. The jacket is made in a classic style with notched lapels and no closures. The skirt is made in a lower calf length with a slit at either side. Both pieces are fully lined, the jacket in a satin poly fabric and the skirt in a synthetic organza.

Color: Purple (mix of maroon and a violet blue sequin)

Fabric: Sequined fabric, probably a synthetic


Size 12 is indicated on the cardboard tag, but due to the waistline measurement of the skirt, I would say that this is more of a medium size - please note the following measurements for fit:


Shoulders: 16" across, shoulder seam to shoulder seam

Sleeves: 23 1/2" long

Sleeve inseam: 17"

Bust: 38" around, taken under the arms, with a normal opening at the front

Waist: 37" around, with a normal opening at the front

Length: 25", measured flat


Waist: 26"-27" around

Length: 35"


This set is in very good condition with no wear, tear, stains or odors - there is the odd sequin missing, but nothing noticeable, and otherwise, it looks like it saw little use and was well stored over the years.

This is a striking Disco era suit - super glittery.....sure to be noticed!
