1950s Vintage Sheath Dress And Coat Suit Red Green Christmas Holiday Ensemble

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is the perfect holiday ensemble! A vintage late 1950's ore early 1960's sleeveless red sheath dress with a matching red coat that has gorgeous green silk lining. This dress suit was acquired when I purchased the entire estate of a prominent woman in the Pacific Northwest who bought only the finest clothing and accessories. Nothing from her collection was mediocre but a few things were not labeled. Some of her unlabeled pieces have been attributed to Norman Norell and Chanel by fashion museum experts.This outfit has no labels, but is obviously incredibly well made and most likely was made by an important mid century designer of the time. My guess is that it might be one of the many Clare Potter pieces she owned. She particularly loved Ms. Potter's use of color and this is reminiscent of that.

This vintage Christmas red sleeveless wool dress and coat suit is in pristine condition.The coat is fully lined in Christmas green so it would be perfect for the holidays, though it is not limited to the season! The dress is lined in silk and has a back metal zipper. Exquisitely crafted with beautiful topstitching that was difficult to show in photos, unfortunately! Great outfit! Please use the measurements as a guide, but I would estimate this to be a modern US size 6/8.
