70s 80s Vintage Red Nipon Skirt Suit Nip Waist Jacket S
A killer late 1970s to early 1980s vintage suit from the early days of Albert Nipon! Curvy fit and flare jacket, cut with princess lines. A 2" wide band of channel stitched fabric curves around the entire perimeter of the jacket, from a stand-up collar in back to plackets forming a vee-neck continuing onto and around the bottom of the jacket adding structure for the gently flared effect. Shoulders are padded with a ruffled internal extension to help the fabric puff out a bit. The full sleeves end in fitted and buttoned cuffs. The skirt is simply styled with light gathering onto a set-in waistband for a silhouette that is straight but not fitted. Both jacket and skirt are unlined.
Labeled size 4
Medium weight jersey knit in tomato red. Labeled 100% wool, but it's nice and soft, not scratchy at all.
