Introducing The Vintage Jeanne Paquin Couture Jacket
Introducing a very special vintage couture project:
A 1950’s Vogue Paris Original vintage Jeanne Paquin couture jacket.
The Vintage Couturière is excited to be making this jacket designed for Vogue by the House of Paquin in the 1953. Made in dark blue cotton velvet and embellished with metallic thread tambour embroidery and Swarovski crystals, this jacket is sure to impress any vintage couture collector or enthusiast. The jacket will feature the signature J Paquin tambour embroidered around the neckline. We’re also having the pleated scarf hand made by a pleater in Australia who specialises in the hand pleating process as is done for the haute couture ateliers in Paris.
The illustration above appears on the cover of the original Vogue Couturier pattern. The pattern has been resized for a modern bespoke fit. Below is a photo of a cotton toile of the original pattern in size 16: bust 34″ and hips 37″.
The embroidery pattern features motifs of feathers stitched in gold and silver metallic threads set amongst sparkling beads of Swarovski crystals and three dimensional beaded flowers.
