This came from the estate of a lady who was always well dressed. She wouldn’t have dreamed of leaving the house without her hair done – in later years her wig – face fully made up, jewelry, and matching shoes and purses. She had an outfit for every possible occasion and more. She would have been in her 30s in the 1960s. I can imagine her wearing this to a fall football game and looking like a million bucks.
It is quite heavy and packed, will be just over 2 lbs.
