Victor Costa 1980s Striped Velvet Jacket & Skirt


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

From the 80s here's a glamorous two piece ensemble from Victor Costa.  The main part of the peplum jacket is black velvet with gold applique trimming and colorful crystal beads.  It is lined in black rayon satin & the sleeves are lined in an organza with large shoulder pads.   It does up the front with a long metal zipper.  The Victorian influence shows in the leg o mutton sleeves which are striped and very puffy at the top with large shoulder pads as well.   The skirt is a beautiful green color & it's fully lined.   It also has a short tulle insert at the top of the skirt to help it stand out from the hip area.  The skirt has two pockets which are hidden away in the pleating.  Skirt does up with the back with a short nylon zipper and two large hooks & eyes on the waistband.  There is also a stiffened banding at the bottom of the lining of the skirt.
