1950s Crepe Rhinestone Suit, Size-6

Franklin Original


Wonderful cocktail suit in black crepe. The jacket has a blouson effect and has a tiny collar and lapels. Jacket over panels fall from points above the bust and taper to the side seams connecting along the waistline. These create pockets on the front and are also dotted in rhinestones. Small bow and hook closure at the front waist. Long sleeves are cut in one with the jacket and ends with turned back cuffs. Matching slender skirt falls from a narrow waistband with pleats on either side of the center front. The jacket is lined in blue satin.

Condition: A couple of minor snags in the crepe, but nothing major. This was originally a dress and jacket, but the bodice was badly damaged so my tailor turned it into a skirt instead to save it!
