Perfect for lunch out or a special St. Paddy’s dinner date. Yes, a very rare construction to find. My grandmother had a dress in brown made this way and I have a black suit in my true vintage closet, but that’s it. Ribbon sewn in swirls over mesh. Can you imagine the time taken to construct a garment this way if done by hand? Though the fabric was, I believe, done by machine, still very painstaking.
It’s always nice to have beautiful separates. This looks marvelous with some of my mid-century dressy blouses.
