Prominent Designer M248; ca. 1960s; Don Loper - Misses' Suit
It's the side-buttoned look as West Coast design wizard Don Loper does it - sleek, slim, effortlessly elegant. Not the impeccable cut of the jacket from curved collar to smart, buttoned sleeve detail. Note the important skirt shaping - three buttons above a deep pleat (good-looking and no zipper!). Printed Pattern M248 is unlimited in versatility - it can be a day or dinner ensemble depending on whether or not you line it. Choose Dacron, cotton ottoman, wool jersey, flannel OR the opulence of velveteen, matelasse or brocade.
Printed Pattern M248 is available in Misses' Sizes 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18. Size 16 requires 4 1/4 yards 45-inch fabric.
Featured in Designer Pattern Couture Collection 10 (undated - ca. early to mid 1960s)
