This jacket is stunning! I was able to see it with my own eyes a few years ago in San Francisco.
Sandra Stillwell created a version of this jacket for her "Golden Gate Glamour" convention in 2011. The jacket was part of a huge collection of separates called the "Cristobal Collection". It is reversible, with a black side. I need to play around with this jacket more.
I love this look.

I am running out of words to describe all these wonderful outfits.
This gown was also recreated for the 2011 convention. I wish I had had the $$$$$ to buy it and the doll.
Balenciaga was having a big puffy sleeve moment in 1950 because I found three designs with them.
I love them too.
If I could find the right fabric, I would love to make this gown. It would probably have to be custom made. I really need to learn how to use the embroidery part of my sewing machine.
The bodice detail in this dress is beautiful.
And of course there is this design. I just finished a batch of these suits earlier this year. What a job!
