Estate sale find: super groovy 1960s or early 70s crinkle cotton sheer gauze mod Peter Max style print pallazzo pant and shell ensemble by Tenner of North Carolina (with Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue tag). The colors are bright and chipper, and the look is definitely showstopping without looking too wacky wild retro--it's a sophisticated print that is reminiscent of Pucci, or if Etro did mod 60s groovy. The colors are happy and bright--candy pink, bright orange, sky blue, lime green--The fabric is a sheer cotton or cotton blend (no labels for content). The top is a shell that can be belted, as shown, or worn loose. The pants are long and wide and move when you walk. They are labeled size 12 (but a 1967 size 12, so check your measurements against mine below).

Label: Tanner of North Carolina (Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue)
Size: labeled 12 (I will call this a modern size 6/8)
Fabric: cotton gauze
Remarks: pant clasps in front; shell zips up back; belt is not included

gilet/skimmer top:
38" bust
18" across hem at bottom of shell
17" width, shoulder, edge of arm to opposite
20-3/4" back of neck to hemline rear
pants:
27" high waist (pant clasps at the front)
17" rise in the crotch
41" from waist (side) to hemline side

Condition: fair to good vintage condition with some flaws: there is a very light stain on the back of the pants. Not sure if t can come out. The pants have some seam stress at the crotch and some minor tearing--this, I am confident can be stitched up and made stable. The front of the pants are missing a metal closure that can be replaced easily, and there is a rip in the seam where the crotch seam begins just below the waist. The pant is pleated inward at the front, so this seam is pulled with each step while wearing; it looks like it can be secured together and be worn sporting a lighter gait than that of a stomping a runway model. This is a minor repair and your tailor may have a great solution for the seam stress--I would add a tiny panel that can be the secure ground for the seam. The matching shell top has some darkening spots on the hemline in the front and some very light staining that is faint, not glaring, and hard to spot. The stain on the palazzo pants are on the front, not th back as I thought they were; they are both very faint, and in normal daylight would be hard to spot. There is one n the front hip that is a 1" darkness in the fabric (a stain that has 95% been removed), and the other is lower on the pant and even more faint. Frankly, they are very hard to spot. The real issue with these pants is the sewing of the seam and the replacement of the chrome closure, an easy repair. That said, the outfit is not perfect, but perfect for a Mad Men party or 60s or 70s themed outfit, or for the adventurous repair maven who wants to rescue this amazing ensemble. I thought it was worthy of repair, and hopefully so will you. Send me a Convo me with any questions, and thanks for checking out my shop.

Shipping basics: I can ship worldwide to most locales (not all) so ask. Also I can discount and combine shipping for multiple items. Just ask. More info on shipping below.

About me: I am a NY based photo prop stylist for magazines like Real Simple, Instyle, Seventeen, and a few others, plus I’m a well versed shopping powerhouse for props for my photo shoots (some, you will find, oftentimes end up here on Etsy). I really enjoy finding cool stuff, and the result is what I consider a finely curated collection of vintage clothing, fashion and home accessories, and mid century odds and ends---with fair and affordable pricing. I like good stuff.

On the whole I’m an easy to approach seller, and if you love something but can’t afford it and wish I would discount it for you I probably will. That said, I majorly frown on low-ball offers for items that are clearly well-priced, so do us both a favor and don’t go there. My pricing is fair and Im told super cheap in comparison to like items in other shops or on Ebay. I am interested in making money, yes, but I tell you I get more of a charge out of finding appreciative homes and closets for my amazing things. The real deal is that I have a really skilled eye for lovely items, and I have more than I can handle and need to clear out my storage bins.

On quality: When I shop I do so carefully, and only select items of a certain quality and design dignity. I really like crafting a nicely balanced shop with things for most body shapes and sizes, and I take great care in how each item compliments other items in my shop. I only list things I feel are of a high quality, but if I find an amazing dress thatis damaged or needs some love, I have it listed because I know there is someone out there who wants it---even with blemishes or repair needs. I've found Etsy to be the perfect place for me to sell that sort of thing. So the message is: there’s no junk here, just well a well culled group of neat vintage stuff from home goods to fashion.

I dutifully detail all measurements, blemishes, and details I feel are necessary in the listing, and welcome additional info about a designer or item from shoppers. In my travels I come across amazing vintage clothing in the spirit of Betty Draper and Joan Holloway from Mad Men--great silhouettes and styles that are hand made, dressmaker patterned, or tailor made by home makers in the 50s and 60s. When I come across major designer labels like Chanel or Dior I scoop them up, and again with damaged clothing of a certain quality I know there is someone out there with a mending kit and some moxie that wants them. That said, most of what I like to sell is in clean and ready to go condition.

Shipping: I can ship worldwide (though not everywhere) so convo me for inquiries about countries not listed. As a rule I try to ship Priority Mail when possible to insure that shipments arrive safely and have some sort of trafficking number. I can ship any way you like, though. For international shipments I can send via USPS International First Class depending on the weight of the package, and that is usually a less expensive route. When I am in town I generally ship same day as purchase or within 2 or 3 days. If I am out of town for extended periods of time I put my shop on hold, so if it’s up online I’m probably in town.
