This exquisite ensemble is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than some wear under each arm of the jacket - not easily discernible when the jacket is worn due to the pattern. The interior label reads: Hal-Mar Juniors.

Please be sure to note the iconic tailoring of the jacket: nipped waist, flared peplum, pointed black velvet collar,wide, pointed lapels, 3" wide rolled up cuffs with black velvet trim on the 3/4 sleeves; note, too, the 5 black velvet buttons on each side down the front and the black velvet edged flap with its 3 black velvet buttons at each hip. There is a shoulder pad on each side.

Then the sheath: note the overlapped heart shaped, lightly boned decolletage and the row of 3 black velvet buttons down each side of the bodice, the nipped waist and the 3 soft pleats just underneath. WOW!
