vintage 1960s plaid jumpsuit / silver BERNETTI New York formal gown suit
Incredible ivory and silver wool plaid metallic weave jumpsuit with matching jacket, circa 1960s vintage. Super MOD luxe formal evening suit!
"An Original Bernetti, New York" label, the sleeveless jumpsuit has a moderate V- neckline with attached neck sash (one stitch holds this on, so easily removable if desired), and an optional belt. Both the scarf and belt have silver beaded fringe ends. Fitted bodice, exceedingly wide leg pants with front kick pleat appear to be a full, floor length skirt. False patch pockets with domed rhinestone buttons on the front upper hips. Hidden zip up the back center. Both the scarf piece and belt have optional snap stays,
The matching jacket is a bit boxy in shape, with corresponding V- neckline. Three button front with large domed rhinestone buttons, matching false flap pockets with smaller buttons. Front slash detailing at hem matches up with darts. Sleeves are bracelet length.
Both pieces are fully lined in white rayon blend, and in excellent condition. The only flaws to note are the two missing rhinestones- one on the right jacket pocket and one on the lowest jacket button.
The jumpsuit is absolutely stellar on its own or with the matching jacket; the jacket would be incredibly chic (with or without the sash belt, as shown) over jeans, a simple black sheath, etc.
both pieces are tagged size 12, please confirm measurements. Mannequin is a US 2- 4 and this is only slightly large on "her"
