Jackie Kennedy Onassis-Peaches & Cream
This dress and coat set were a custom request, styled after the set worn by Jackie O. The top two pictures show the original coat on display and Jackie wearing the coat. Made with cream wool fabric the dress is fully lined with elbow length sleeves. The coat features princess seams in the front with large fold over pockets, fully lined in cream satin, large covered buttons fasten through the front seam. Matching faux fur muff and collar that snaps off.
This dress is styled after the silk dress worn by Jackie. My version is made using peachy/apricot faux silk fabric, fully lined, the dress front features stylish princess seams with bust darts, a very popular detail in the 60's. The waist belt features a front bow. The skirt is the full width of the fabric with only a center back seam. Slight scoop/V-neckline just enough low to show off a great necklace :-)
