Mad Men realness 1960s hand knit dress and jacket ensemble in purple and mauve, totally knitted by hand. I came into possession of a collection of hand knits made by a woman in Brooklyn in the 50s and 60s, and this one is a stellar example of her handicraft. Fully fashioned and gorgeous in both construction and silhouette, it has a matching cardigan that teams up with the dress collar to create what can best be described as an ensemble. The wool is soft and not scratchy. It's a fab dress. There are no labels or size cues, so I have measured the dimensions and listed them below. Check your measurements against mine for a proper fit.

Dress:
32" bust
27" waist
30"-33" high hip (if you really want to wiggle it can expand to 34")
34" hips
45-1/2" shoulder to hemline
13" shoulder, edge of shoulder to opposite
20" from back of neck to top of purple section above hip/waist band section
3" waistband (the purple raised section)
22-1/2" skirt section, the section that is a melange knit, to hemline back

jacket:
13" shoulder width, seam to seam
17" back of neckline to hemline rear
11" sleeve length (outer), seam to sleeve hemline
* four (4) button on jacket--decorative only

condition: good to excellent vintage condition. On the front there are some dropped stitches and possibly a tiny moth hole that could be mended, but overall the dress is in great shape. It could use a hand washing, but there are no stains that I can see. I would call this dress wear now.
