I am continuing our look at the Sears Designer Wardrobe from 1965 by designer Lois Holmes of California. The coat is called 'Lady Fair'. The photo shows a coat that is fully lined, but the directions gloss over this fact, only saying to hem the outer coat to the lining if a lining is used. Not too helpful. This is a classic design and goes well with the previously seen skirt and tops. The contrast color collar, cuffs, and buttons are especially nice.
The color-blocked pullover is called 'Cutenik Pullover', which the designer explains is a result of comments of 'oh, how cute' or 'oh, how beatnikish' in regards to this sweater. The sweater also appears on the back cover in another colorway.
The evening outfit uses the 'The Empress' top and a long evening skirt knit in matching yarn.
This evening jacket is called 'Bird of Paradise'. The designer says it can also be worn with the basic shell, skirt or evening skirt. I wonder what this jacket sold for in the boutiques?
