This suit has a single lapel and is hand-decorated with tiny, oval, bound button holes, separated by filigreed, pewter, bugle beads. Designed specifically for the plus-55 market, it has modified dolman sleeves and is softly fitted. The slim skirt has an elastic waist. The sophisticated woman in the 21st century may wear her skirt whatever length she wishes.
