This is a Nina Ricci skirt and jacket suit made in France probably from the 1970's or 80's. It is a stated size European 44 which is equivalent to a US size 10. However vintage sizes are much different than today's. I would say it is more of a 6 or 8. The skirt is made of silk and is pleated from half way down to the bottom. It is not lined. It closes with a bar clasp and a snap. Waist measures 31" and the length is 27.50". Excellent condition.
The jacket is made of gray velvet with a darker fabric trim. It closes with two gray buttons. Each sleeve also has a button that unbuttons and is not just for decoration. There are darts at the bust and three patch pockets on the front. Fully lined with a mauve satin material. Armpit to armpit 41", Waist 38", Sleeve length 22.50", Length from back of neck 28.34" and Across back of shoulders 16.50". There are a few nicks on the velvet especially on the inside of the collar. There is a small stain below the last buttonhole on the right hand side. I have not had it cleaned.
