Typical of the tailored 3pc. Suits of the 1960's, this stylish outfit sports a great tangerine linen double -breasted long sleeve jacket. The front of the blazer style jacket is detailed with 6 round brass buttons and there are two functional pockets. The back of the jacket has two kick pleats and the inside is fully lined with nylon material of the same color as the linen. The jacket is nicely finished inside and out. The blouse and skirt are made of a nice quality off white linen which compliments the bright orange jacket. The A-Line blouse is only just lined at the top of the bodice and shoulders, but has well finished seams. The sleeves are very slightly capped and there is a nylon zipper back closure. The straight skirt is fully lined with an off white nylon material and has a metal side zipper closure. I can easily see this suit accessorized with black patent shoes and purse, a cute black Breton style hat and shiny black beads! A very smart vintage outfit!
This suit is in near perfect condition, with the exception of a very tiny mark on the very bottom of the skirt. One mark is on the front bottom him and there is another on the back of the very bottom of the hem. Neither would show in the photographs and are hardly noticeable, but it is my policy to note anything that I can see, usually after very close scrutiny. The seam tape in the front of the blouse had come loose and could be re-sewn, but it's certainly not necessary ....as you can see from the photos, it does not cause any problem with the way the blouse lays on the skirt. The blazer has no detectable issues. This suit looks as if it has been gently worn by it's previous owner.
Label: Each piece of the suit is individually labeled: It's Majestic, and there is a union label in a seam in the skirt.
Size: No size tag, but judging by today's sizes I am guessing this suit to be a size 8.
