Fabulous 1960s Silver & White Brocade Tunic & Pant Set w Beaded Front Cut Out
This set is not by any big designer name. It is simply one of those great pieces that you will only ever find in vintage. It is not 100% perfect but its flaws are not terrible and it is one of the sharpest looking sets I have seen. It looks fabulous worn as a set but with it being two pieces it still gives you the freedom to break them up and wear them individually with other pieces in your existing wardrobe. Both piece are made from a white textured brocade that has a silver thread design over its surface. The design is a series of linked circles and these run over the entire set top to bottom. The pants are flat fronted and have a sleek fitted leg that flares out slightly as they near the hem. The long sleeve tunic sits over the pants and it is cut to skim over the bust and waist. Once it is past the waist it flares out on a sharp angle that adds lots of drama to the feel of the set. The neckline is notched into a slit and then running down the front is an open cut out. This is backed in a nude netting so that you are not completely bare but from a distance it looks bare. Over that is an extensive design done in faux pearls, beading and rhinestones. I love how it gives the notion that you are totally bare underneath. I think that if you wanted to you could even have the nude backing removed and actually be bare down the front. Running up from the hem of the tunic is another notched and open slit that ends just ender that amazing beaded detailing. I love it and it is even better on. Presents as excellent condition but there are condition notes to review below
Both pieces are unlined. The tunic closes with a back painted metal zipper and the pants close with a front set zipper. Hand finishes. The bead work is hand done. I think at some point both pieces were lined and the set has a bit softer feel to it now then if it was still lined. The inner seams are finished but have loose threads showing along the edges and the binding edging is not tacked down. There is a very faint mark along one side and near the hem on the other. Very slight grubbiness here and there to the areas you would touch the most often. The zipper of the pants has come off its track - to closes but can have open spots. Please see the last two photos. Sold as is and priced accordingly
