Dated & Numbered c1960 Saks Skirt Set

Utterly fabulous and rare dated 1960 custom day outfit that looks classically 1950s from Saks Fifth Avenue. This is one of those rare cases when you can date the garment exactly as the tag is hand written with the client name, the date and it is numbered as well. The only thing it is missing is the designer that would have designed it! It is a fabulous little set. The fabric is a tightly woven high quality polished cotton. The top is classic late fifties with a fully embroidered front in a taupe threading. I love the little cuffed sleeves and the turned down collar. It nips in the waist to sit under the amazing matching skirt. The skirt is all full fifties fabulousness, The same embroidery is done in a wide panel down thew entire front and the skirt is full and charming. It attaches to the extremely nipped in waist in a series of flat knife pleats. It has attached under skirts for fullness. So classic and a wonderful and rare full set!

Shoulders: 14" across
Bust: 18" flat across the back from seam to seam
Waist: 13" flat across the back from seam to seam
Length: 22" from neck to hem

Waist: 11" flat across the back from seam to seam (you could move the hooks over a touch to get another 1/2 inch
Hips: open Length: 23.5" from waist to hem

The top is unlined and closes with front buttons. The Skirt has a netted lining and closes with a side metal zipper and hook & eye at the the waist band. There is the very slightest of marks to the fabric along the inner back collar, the inner waist band and along the hem of the skirt. These may soak out with additional cleaning as they already faded almost completely with one round of cleaning. The hem is very deep - a full 9" and I suspect it was turned up at some point to shorten the skirt. I love it this length!
