"Midnight Knit & Satin" Vintage 1960's Black Knitted Evening Dress & Matching Jacket UK 10 US 6


This eye-catching 1960's evening dress and matching jacket, rendered in a black knitted design with cream rayon satin accents, is sure to be a favourite in your cocktail wardrobe.  

The straight cut neckline of the dress is framed by wide shoulder straps and lined in cream rayon satin internally along the shoulder line and bust. The fitted bust-line is set off by cream rayon satin trims that cross over centrally in rounded petal like details and finish in a decorative bow along the centre of the backline. The fitted bodice of the dress, draws the eye to the figure hugging cut, as the knit skims the silhouette.

The matching jacket, boasts a V shaped neckline with cream satin rayon edges showcasing slim lapels. The elegant sloped shoulder line sets off the 3/4 lengths sleeves. The cropped length of the jacket sits perfectly above the detailed under-bust of the dress and features a triangular slit along the centre back, in which the back decorative bow of the dress can be positioned. The jacket is fully lined in cream satin rayon. The dress is lined in a soft tulle.
