Stunning 1950s Raw Silk Dress and matching princess coat in a bronze silk grosgrain
The dress is table cut and has been hand finished to an excellent standard and lined with a light weight silk.

The coat has also been hand finished, and lined in the same silk as the dress. It is an absolutely divine dress suit, perfect for any retro wedding, garden party or vintage themed gathering.

In all this is a fabulous set is unique in design, made by Susan Novell of Mayfair.

It has been worn but is still in the most delicious condition and highly wearable today. The dresses style is so very cosmopolitan with a slashed neck and with delicate darting to compliment the wearer.

The coat is an absolute dream. It may be worn edge to edge or with the high rolled neck collar fastened.
It drapes so very well. The huge stand up oval neckline is just so, the sleeves are 3/4 being of the bracelet style should the lady require to wear the longer length cocktail glove.
The shoulders are tailored and the deep high waist is cut to give a flat front, to the back it falls in folds.

The set has a size labels of a vintage 48 so I have given measurements taken when the creation was laid flat. These are given as a guide for comparison against a similar garment of ones own.
