CLEARANCE: Vintage 1960s Yellow Knit Suit With Beaded Collar

Toadstool Farm Vintage

1 Available

Sunny yellow colored 1960s knit suit from Robinsons. Amazing collar just dripping beads and sequins and matching trim at the cuffs and buttons on the box shape jacket. Short sleeve, below the knee pencil skirt.  Comfortable and stylish. Label reads: Made Exclusively for Robinsons in the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong. It also lets us know it is "Fully Fashioned", 100% wool and hand made and decorated, also a 1960s size 14 ( but do see the measurements as vintage sizing is different than modern sizing. Probably about a large size.  Please see condition below.
Good to great vintage condition. This is completely and utterly wearable but it does have some unfortunate moth holes in several paces. I've shown the worst batch in the photos. In addition there are some discolorations in places , most of which are fairly mild,  but the worst is along the right side of the skirt and right shoulder where its fairly grayish.  I'd suggest this either as a costume or for a photo shoot or perhaps it could be upcycled. That collar, cuff trim and those buttons alone are worth acquiring it. Priced accordingly, as is, and why it's in my Scratch and Dent section.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hips. This is a knit so there is a little give to the fabric. Measurements are with no stretch.
