Dressing for success is quick and easy with this snazzy little two-piece suit. Designed for woven fabrics such as vintage calicos and mini prints, the lined, fitted jacket features princess seams, banded, puffed sleeves, and a shawl collar with front button closure. The jacket curves nicely at the waist, accented by the tie ends that circle around from the front princess seams to button at the center back. For added fashion interest, the sleeve bands, tie ends, and shawl collar can be cut from a contrasting fabric. For a graceful fit on older, fuller dolls or the newer, slimmer ones, the matching tulip skirt features six gores with an elastic waist and a flippy little hem detail.
The entire outfit is set off by the couture briefcase/computer bag/purse designed to be made of matching fabric with pleather/vinyl straps and trim accent. The bag features a zipper closure and an optional shoulder strap. The matching fabric may be quilted, monogrammed, or embroidered for additional charm.
