Chic early to mid 60s empire line sheath dress with matching crop jacket. This dress has it it all - smart, elegant, versatile with a shot of sass thrown in. Perfect for Goodwood Revival!
This is a elegant and sophisticated suit for early 60s fans and is the epitome of early 60s fashions. A must for ladies who love grown up glamour - this set will take you from lunch with the girls through to evening dinner with your beau...just thrown on a pair of heels, some splendid earrings and you're set! Look out Pippa Middleton!
The dress is typical of the mid 1960s, having a high scoop neckline and flattering cap sleeves. Waistline is empire but whole style is princess line which is great on many shapes. Length is shorter than many styles (just on the knee for average heights) so also suits those who like to show a bit more leg.
The dress is paired with a short waisted jacket - a style taken from an original. We love how the crop style of the jacket creates a shapely silhouette, emphasising the waist. Jacket has one fastening at the top but can happily be left undone. Sleeves are elbow length and jacket is fully lined in scarlet red.
The fabric is a stunning boucle in mixed fibres, it has some stretch. Lining is acetate.

This dress is made of stretch crepe. So if you are between sizes, then probably best to choose the smaller size. This is not the best dress if you have a large bust as there is only so much room in the style.
