Pretty light golden set in a larger size, but the dress is short waisted. Sleeveless dress is fully lined in acetate and has a metal zipper down the back. There is heavy beading on the front and back of the bodice in silver and gold.
The cropped jacket has folded collar and covered buttons down the front. 3/4 length sleeves, lined in satin and beaded on the front and on the sleeves.
CONDITION - The set is in very good condition. No stains, no missing beaded. Both the dress and the jacket were taken in and then let out at some point. This has left behind lines where the old stitching was removed. On the dress the 2 lines on each side are 2 inches apart on the sides of the bodice and about 4 inches apart on the skirt.
The lines on the jacket are about 1-1/2 to 2 inches apart down each side.
