As if that is not the perfect reason to add this statement piece to your collection I must add that this belonged to Maria Cole, the late wife of Nat King Cole. A amazing women in her own right whom I was blessed to know. So let's discuss this outfit.. In lovely proud condition we have a beautiful pin stripe skirt matched with a v neck best and finishing it off with a matching sweater.
Tag say size 8 but this will fit a small or perhaps an extra small women. Let's remember this is a designer sizing. This will need pressed and then it will be ready for the world to embrace. I have had it stored away for over 8 years. The skirt has belt loops and a classic pleated look with one pocket.
The best is simple yet so beautiful as is its companion sweater. Wear together or mix and match with other pieces. 12 1/2 inches across the waist. 1 4 inches across the top.
17 inches across the bust. 14 inches across the shoulder. Mint condition except in one photo you will see that the sleeve stitching as showing as if it's rolled a bit. A pressing should solve the problem not that there is a problem. Not surprised if this was never worn.Most likely from the 1980s. Refer to photos which do not do this set justice-sorry Anthony.
