We don't normally dip our toes into the 80s - it is, after all, generally considered to be 'the decade that fashion forgot', but there were a few gems about - and this is certainly one of them! Beautifully wearable, with a full, draping skirt and waist-nipping jacket top, this little suit can hold its own anywhere!
It's forties/fifties style, which is possibly our excuse - but more than that, it truly is gorgeous! If you're looking for something different for that special occasion - look no further!
The fabric is a silky viscose (rayon) in a warm, creamy shade, printed all over with large lilies in pink and yellow. The skirt is very full, and the jacket has flattering elbow-length sleeves, false breast pockets, and fastens with three self-covered buttons.
The label reads 'BOA - Paris - Made in France'. The skirt fastens up the front with six self-covered buttons, and has extra little pleats at the hem to add even more fullness - I promise you, the whole is stunning!
It's marked as size 3, and will fit a UK size 10/12 (but see details below). Approximate measurements are: underarms 42 ins/107 cms, length of jacket 24ins/61 cms, waist 30½ ins/77.5 cms, length of skirt 34 ins/86.5 cms, circumference of skirt more than 276 ins/755 cms (impossible to measure accurately)
