About

Sybil Connolly, the famous Irish couturiere was well known for using fabrics that were from her native country. The beautiful green wools in this outfit are excellent examples. The reversible coat is olive green wool with a delicate woven pattern on one side and a matching green and cream hounds tooth n the reverse. There is a button and loop closure on the solid green side and a hook and eye on the other side. Both sides have generous patch pockets and the coat is cut full for added movement.
The matching hounds tooth dress or jumper is open to the waist. It has a series of internal snaps and fabric buttons at the center front of the skirt. There are two pockets on the dress as well. It is fully lined in silk and bears the Sybil Connolly label. Both pieces are in excellent condition.
