Vintage 60s Dress with Matching Jacket Jackie O Size L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage 60s dress with matching jacket made by Canadian manufacturer Auckie Sanft. Auckie Sanft was a quality maker and had well known Canadian designers John Warden and Jean-Claude Poitras working for them during the 60s and 70s. This 60s dress ensemble is made of pinky beige and ivory white tweed wool, almost like a homespun weave. The dress is made with short sleeves and a high rounded neckline. The body of this 60s dress is beige with a center panel and neckline in ivory white. The dress does up with a zipper placed on the right side of the back, unusual placement instead of the usual center placement. The jacket is made in a shorter style with ivory white collar. It has two faux pocket flaps on either upper side placed diagonally. It does up with three white plastic buttons down the front. Both pieces of this 60s dress are lined in a rayon crepe fabric.
