1960s White Silk Couture Dress with Jacket Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a very nice quality white silk dress dating to the early 1960s, made by Ritche Moser Couture of Toronto. The dress is made in a simple sleeveless style with spaghetti straps. The bodice of the dress is covered with white lace. The dress tapers at the waist - please note that the dress was slightly large for my mannequin so was pinned back for the photos. The dress does up the back with a metal zipper and is lined in white acetate. It has a matching jacket, made in a style often associated with Jackie Kennedy. The jacket has a simple neckline with a narrow collar and dropped 3/4 length sleeves. It has a faux pocket at either lower side, is lined in acetate, and does up with three large pearlescent plastic buttons.
