Sensational 1970's vintage Jean Patou 2 piece dress in a luxuriously fine black silk covered with metallic gold and green embroidered paisleys! This is a seriously glamorous ensemble.
The dress has a semi sheer blouse with front covered buttons, a pussybow tie and collar snaps. The blouse is meant to be loose fitting, and can be worn with the skirt or with a pair of black pants or a skirt. You could even wear it with jeans!
The long skirt is fully lined and pleated, closing with a zipper and snap. It has two layers of embroidered fabric, and when worn, the top layer of shining paisleys alternate with a more muted version for a masterful pattern. The paisleys on the skirt are the same style, just noticeably larger than the ones on the top.
We estimate this ensemble to fit a modern day size 6/8 but please use the measurements as a guide for the best fit. Though the pieces are labeled a 12, it is a vintage size 12 and it fits our mannequin like a 6/8. It is in excellent vintage condition.
