1960s Striped Knit Shift Dress & Coat

This fabulous little set has a old Holt Renfrew label and sadly no other. It can from an estate choc full of Chloe, Valentino, Dior and other top labels of the day so I would not be surprised if it turned out to be a designer piece! It is incredibly chic and even though it is knit, it is not bulky or too heavy for a modern girl to wear and feel comfortable in. The dress is a short shift with cream borders and buttons to highlight the bodice. The jacket is a perfect natch and cut straight with a collar and little pockets at the front. Love the gold toned buttons used on the jacket! Excellent condition!

The jacket buttons to close and the dress closes with a back painted metal zipper. Both pieces are unlined. There were two nicks in the knit along the top of the collar at the back and I put a stitch in each to secure.
