This is a beautiful early French fashion outfit. The top is made of black velvet, some of the fuzz has worn off with age, but it only adds to it's charm. It's completely tailored and has pearl buttons running down the front and is trimmed in lace. The skirt is black wool and may not be original to the jacket, but goes very nicely with it and is also an early piece. The hat is a very nice reproduction that works perfectly with the jacket and skirt.
The jacket and skirt together measure about 11 1/2" in length. The waist 9" around, skirt alone measures 9" in length. The jacket shoulders measure 4 1/2" across from seam to seam.
