Vintage 1960s Mod Dress & Coat Ensemble Set Brown Linen by Montroy Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a dress and coat set made of brown linen with white detailing. The dress is made in a style that I call “60s does 20s”. It has a high rounded neckline, short sleeves, a defined waistline, but also has a white delineation and seam that give the impression of a dropped waist - the skirt below that seam is made in wide pleats. It is fully lined in white acetate and does up the back with a nylon zipper. The matching coat is made with an eight button double breasted front with military style lapels and collar, somewhat mod in design. There is a large squared patch pocket at either side, each with a turned out flap decorated with two buttons. The sleeves have two button cuffs. The buttons are made of brown and white plastic. It is cut with a slight A line and has a double kick pleat at the back. The back of the coat has decorative stitching following the box pleating that goes down the coat to the kick vents, and there is a belt across the back waist. It also is lined in white acetate.
