This stunning suit was hand-made for its wearer with impeccable talent and quality of stitch and fabric. It reminds me of Middleburg and the Hunt-club scene of the mid-century, so elegant and classic. Consists of a beaded jacket and pencil skirt in a deep wine-colored satin fabric. Jacket has a large over-sized shawl collar embellished with hand-beaded drops, sewn-in shoulder pads, vanity front placket with snaps/hooks, front button/loop petticoat closure, tiny cinched waist with a slight peplum jacket skirt, buttoned cuffs, exceptional seaming and note that the sleeves are very narrow. The skirt is slightly A-line with side zip+ hook closure, rear long vertical pleat, simple banded waist, unlined. Lovely condition with the following notes: On jacket the hooks in front need to be restitched as they are loose; on the skirt the side snap needs to be resitched; there are a couple of beaded drops missing; there are some dark marks on the front of the skirt – not sure if they will dry clean out but they are some-what camouflaged with the dark color and sheen of the skirt. Label is Paul Parness. C1940s, size XS.
