1960s Christian Dior Teal Boucle Suit

This is an absolutely lovely, early 1960s classic box cut suit in an unusual and very flattering combination of a soft teal and tan. It also has its original suede belt for the skirt, hand dyed to match the teal! The skirt is a classic little A-line and the jacket a box cut with just the hint of a shape through the waist. All the buttons are original and it has lots of couture level touches - the button loops are handmade of the same fabric hand finishes inside and the lining is pieces and hand placed. Amazing and in excellent condition

Lined in pale turquoise tissue silk. Closes with buttons at the front and a painted meal zipper on the skirt. The belt is original and stamped Christian Dior. Some of the backing of the belt is going and it has some dust on the suede but overall it presents well from the front. No flaws to the exterior of the suit. There are some discoloration inside the arms but this of course does not show when on.
