Description: Lovely waistcoat pattern, stylish, and very much of its time, with the large tagged zips and horseshoe neck features - a boxy shaped jacket for the man and a mini-skirt option for the woman. There are simple cable panels on the waistcoats - and the matching skirt has a single lobster claw cable at the front.
Generally in good condition - the picture has a faint stamp from the original sales shop.
