1950s Velvet Peggy Hunt Set

I am a little sad that this can only be viewed in the picture as the photos do not fully capture the lushness of the black velvet and the level of construction and beauty of the piece. An amazing set form Peggy Hunt, this is impeccably made and really sits well on the body. The dress is a simple sheath, nipped in slightly at the waist for shape but otherwise cut very simply so the body in the dress is really highlighted. The front has a scooped neck and no sleeves and the back a deep V for a bit f sexiness. The jacket is box cut and has no closures so is easy to wear. The rich look of the velvet is further emphasized with heavy jet look faceted beads, worked into elaborate looped flat braiding. These are used around the waistline and all around the edges of the jacket. As a final and lovely detail the jacket is lined in an unexpected cream silk satin so you get that little flash when you wear it! The workmanship of this set is impeccable. Stunning and in excellent condition!
