|Vintage 1950s Tailored Black Wool Jacket by Irene Lentz SZ S
Irene Lentz's jackets have the best tailoring. This black wool suit jacket (no skirt) has an extremely wide lapel and collar that almost covers a lovely welted breast pocket on the right side. The buttons are covered with tiny bound buttonholes. And the jacket is nipped in with darts. Shoulder pads, of course. And hem weights. Those front hip pockets? The right one is somewhat standard and ends in the dart. The left one? This one is an open welted slit, set higher on the hip than the right. It's not a pocket and the lining on the back is fully finished. Perhaps a slot for a scarf? Or hankie? What you see in the photos is the fabric of an unrelated skirt. The jacket is fully lined in black silk.

|1970 Vintage Abstract Printed Silk Twill Dress by B.H. Wragge Sz S/M|
I adore that Wragge actually dated their label. This 1970 dress is a marvelous , bold print in orange, yellow, aqua, rose and fuchsia. The style is simple - open shirt style collar, 3/4 flare sleeves and tent silhouette. This is beautifully made, with a silk lining, handset metal zipper and hand sewn hem. And side pockets, too! Wragge made good quality ready to wear for the younger American market. And did it well.
