Christian Dior suit, size 4/6
This vintage Christian Dior suit has a pattern of black woven interlocking boxes with woven interiors in a wheat color.
There is no fabric content tag, but it feels like a very soft wool.
The jacket has nine black shiny buttons with gold-tone depressed centers down the front and an attached envelope with one extra button.
It has detachable and reversible cuffs and collar, which were very popular in the '60s.
The cuffs and collar are champagne-beige on one side and eggplant on the other.
It's a thick, shiny textured fabric.
The cuffs are attached by 4 clear buttons and the collar by 6 clear buttons and 2 textured buttons in the front.
It has a very nice black lining.
It has shoulder pads and a jewel neckline (without the collar).
The straight skirt has a 1 1/4" wide waistband with a 1 button back closure and a 6 1/2" back center zipper.
It has a 7 1/2" back open flap kickpleat and 2 side seam pockets.
The suit was made in the USA.
It's from a former model, who got it as a wedding present from her ex-mother-in-law.
