vintage 1960s pastel silk Miss Bergdorf dress jacket suit / impressionist Spring blooms watercolor XS
Stunning silk twill pastel watercolor dress and matching jacket by Miss Bergdorf of Bergdorf Goodman, New York.
Dress has a jewel neckline and subtle cap sleeve detail.
Streamlined bodice with darted bust, softly nipped waist with banded detail and front bow in matching silk.
Skirt is softly A- lined to the hem; hidden metal zip up the back center.
Matching jacket is a bit boxy, with front princess seaming, notched collar, 3/4 length sleeves, no closures.
Both pieces are fully lined or backed (the dress, prior to construction) in pale green silk.
Of spectacular quality and in great condition- with the following alterations: the waist was long ago nipped in at both sides, this could be undone if required. Dress was hemmed at time of purchase.
An absolute classic!
