Fabulous set comprised of cropped sleeveless top and sheath skirt with back slit cut from an antique paisley shawl.

material: wool. Top lined in silk pongee
closure: top with nylon back zip at neck, skirt with back nylon zip
label: none, custom made/sewn

condition: good /very good. freshly dry cleaned. Skirt has an old patched tear near the zipper (the sewer took care to match the pattern of the patch to the skirt!) and a newer patch on the front left bodice (see image). Both patches blend fairly well with the highly detailed woven design. Bodice has some wear around armholes and neckline, mainly to interior. See final images. Priced with these flaws in mind.
