Channeling your inner Jackie O? Want to strut your stuff Madmen style?
This is a stunning little suit set 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 luncheon throught to evening dinner...just throw on a pair of heels, some 3 string pearls and you're set!
The dress is typical of the early 1960s, having a high 'jewel' neckline which is a simple round style. Waistline is nipped in and emphasised with the ruched cummerband - another key early 60s feature which really accentuates an hourglass shape by nipping in under the bust. The elegant darts at the top of skirt create a slight tulip shape again creating the hourglass figure.
The dress is sleeveless and is paired with a short waisted jacket - a style taken from an original pattern from the period and adapted. Jacket features a wide collar with notch detail and one button fastening. Bracelet length sleeves and lined with sumptuous ivory viscose crepe.

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.
Style suits apples, hourglasses, inverted triangles and pillars most - avoid if pear.

This is a beautiful dress! It's very well made and I love that the armholes on the sleeveless dress are high, so you don't have to worry about undergarments showing. This dress is perfect for a transition from work to dinner.
