About

This strapless vintage dress and matching jacket from the 1980’s was created by Victor Costa. The dress has ribbons of black velvet woven together with strips of ivory satin to create a checked look on the bodice and side and back of the waistband on the jacket. The rest of the jacket and skirt of the dress are both black velvet, and the dress and jacket are both fully lined. The jacket has three faceted square buttons down the front, and giant mutton statement sleeves with two buttons at the cuff. The dress is labeled a vintage size 6, we estimate this dress to be a modern US women’s size 4/6 because the bust is more like a 4. The jacket is a little larger, more like an 8. Both the dress and jacket are in excellent vintage condition.
