It has a high neckline and closes at the back with a nylon zipper. The pant legs are cut wide. It has a defined waistline and the sleeves are unlined to create a semi-transparent look. It has its original belt which does up with snaps.
Label: Cassar Haute Couture. Technically not “haute” couture, but expertly hand sewn by an experienced couturier. During the 50s and 60s, there were a number of couturiers in Montreal that would serve the city’s social class. Cassar was a Montreal designer who eventually specialized in wedding and formal wear.
