VINTAGE '80S TEAL & METALLIC GOLD SLUBBED EVENING JACKET WITH SILK DUPIONI SKIRT
A beautiful vintage '80s evening ensemble in teal and gold comprised of an evening jacket and a silk Dupioni skirt.
You can tell that this was an expensive item in the '80s and was sold in a store like Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman or Saks Fifth Avenue. It is definitely a quality item in both the construction and design.
The ribbed jacket has slubbed threads of Fall colors in teal, scarlet, vanilla and metallic gold to form a gorgeous evening jacket. The jacket is line in the same shade as the skirt. There are fabulous gold metal buttons with a large aurora borealis rhinestone in the center. For ease in wearing the jacket, there are huge snaps under the buttons. There is sparkling metallic gold braid encircling the neckline, down the front of the jacket & on the ends of the sleeves.
The silk Dupioni skirt is a fabulous shade of a rich teal or deep turquoise and it is fully lined in the same fabric which lines the jacket. No exposed seams in the skirt the way it was lined which makes it look so nice as well as feel good. There are 2 large slide hooks on the waistband of the skirt with a 22-3/4" kick pleat in back for ease in walking.
Perfect for a cruise, Christmas or New Year's Eve party, mother of the bride or groom outfit.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning. Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower. Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it. The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
