1950’s Cornelia Couture Dress and Coat


Impeccably constructed two piece outfit in cornflower blue boucle wool. The dress is sculpted beautifully with curved and raised seams creating an architectural silhouette that flatters the body. The coat is dramatically cut with oversized lapels, big cuffed short sleeves, and double breast. The workmanship is truly incredible!

Great vintage condition. One spot of yellowing under the bust on the dress, another spot on top left button of the coat (see last 2 photos). The dress is lined in organza which has some shattering, but completely wearable. The coat is lined in cream silk.
