This black vintage taffeta dress and it's matching jacket are simply stunning; the cut and construction are exceptional.

The neckline is stunning with it's deep V and pleated detail reminiscent of bats' wings, the bodice is boned and it has a nipped in waspish waist.The skirt is full and has the lovely swish of taffeta fabric. It would look more voluminous worn with a petticoat for that extra va va voom.

The cropped jacket closes with 4 buttons, has 3/4 length sleeves which are ruched just above the cuffs and has a decorative trim on the collar and cuffs. The hem is shorter at the front than at the back to show off the waist of the dress.
