Sweet flower print on lush velveteen in rich shades of tawny russet, copper and henna browns with jet black and pewter gray.
This custom sewn princess seamed jacket and 4-gore flared skirt suit is vintage 1970s and in excellent condition.
The jacket is fully lined, the skirt is not. This has no labels, but the velveteen feels like all cotton; we assume the lining is most likely an acetate.
15 1/2" shoulder
25 3/4" long from center back of the neck to the hem
4 1/2" neck point to shoulder point
64" sweep of hem
25 1/2" from bottom of waistband to hem
This is lovely as a suit, but the skirt and jacket are remarkable worn separately.
We love the jacket worn with a belt over it, too, although the belt is one of ours, and not included.
These velveteen prints are taking off in popularity recently, and becoming more difficult to source.
We have lightened many of the photos in order to show detail better; this is quite dark and in very rich, warm shades.
