Talbots suit, size 2 (jacket)/4 (skirt)
This never-worn (except for these pictures) black vintage evening suit is 45% viscose, 35% acetate, and 20% wool.
It's by Talbots and was made in the USA.
There is a tone-on-tone floral design pattern.
The suit has a black synthetic full lining.
The short jacket has shoulder pads, long sleeves, and a wide collar that flows into long lapels.
There is an interior clear button, and on its front two fabric covered buttons, and a smaller fabric covered button under the right lapel.
It has an extra (large size) button in an attached envelope.
The paper tags are still attached.
The skirt has a 1 1/4" wide waistband with a back one button closure.
The back also has a 6 3/8" long zipper and 9 5/8" flap kickpleat.
The front center has four pleats.
The store Talbots tag is still attached to a sleeve (it says size 8 $198.00).
The jacket fits like a size 2/4 and would fit best on a woman with a small chest, and the skirt fits like a size 4.
It's from a former Hollywood actress.
She never wore it.
It was a birthday gift from her now-exhusband.
It hung in her closet for years.
She sold it when she moved into a condo.
