This absolute knock-out of a suit will turn heads! Eye candy in hot hot pink!
A Christian Dior label outfit, I bought this new in 1985, but wore it only a few times (it was a bit too "hot" for the rather "straight-laced" company I worked for). It has been carefully stored in my home ever since I no longer needed suits for business wear. It will reach you carefully packed and freshly dry cleaned! Your best tie blouse will be perfectly set off by the straight, lapel-less front, or wear with a shell as shown and a fabulous necklace.
THE FABRIC is 100% rayon/dry clean only. It has just a bit of a slubby texture (SEE OUR NEXT TO LAST PICTURE - it is not noticeable unless you are close). It travels well and does not wrinkle easily. Both jacket and skirt are fully lined with matching pink, satiny acetate fabric.
CONDITION is VERY gently used, with NO rips, NO tears and NO stains. NO stretched places. The tailoring quality is t-h-e finest - everywhere a stitch is needed, there is one! Truly a designer garment.
THE JACKET: This is a classic VINTAGE 1980s style, longer with shoulder pads. The hem falls at about finger tip length. Its single large (1.25 inch) fabric-covered button front closure is such a classic '80s look, with three identical but slightly smaller buttons on each cuff providing the finishing touch. A diagonal slash pocket with a 1.25 inch top lies flat on each side front (the right pocket is still stitched shut). It drapes beautifully from the shoulders.
THE SKIRT is a classic straight design that slims any figure, and is below-the-knee. An elastic panel is built into the waistband on each side, further assuring a comfortable, individual fit. Two front pleats, one on each side, finish the look. Slash pockets disappear into the side seam on both sides. A 6-inch kick-pleat lays subtly flat in the back. There is a matching pink zipper in the back.
SIZE: The tag says "8" but we measured. THE JACKET: From armpit across to armpit : 19 inches (34-36 inch bust). From armpit down the side seam to the end of jacket: 19.5 inches. From the top down the center back seam to the jacket lower edge: 28.5 inches. From the armpit down the underarm seam of the sleeve to the sleeve cuff edge: 16.5 inches. THE SKIRT: Across the waistband from side edge to side edge: 13 inches, a 26 inch waist (this is with NOT stretching the elastic panels - plan on 15 inches with them stretched). From the top of the waistband to the lower edge of the skirt: 25 inches.
Just a gorgeous outfit that will make you the center of attention when you enter a room! Leave it to Dior to offer garments that bring out the best of anyone's figure, while disguising shortcomings.
