Size 8 Designer Suit - Exquisite Couture Quality Orange Wool Jacket & Skirt by Peggy Jennings - Rainbow Glass Buttons - Waist 28

$ 249.99

A Peggy Jennings suit is a rare find in vintage fashion, and exceptionally chic... as you'd expect from a designer who has First Ladies as clients. This tailored 1990s suit is artfully hued, with rainbow-tinted glass buttons and a gorgeous interplay of tangerine and orchid purple between the outer wool and silk lining. The jacket has a notched lapel, princess seams, flap waist pockets and bound buttonholes. Matching skirt has a fitted waistband and darts to fit. Both pieces fully lined in orchid purple silk satin.
