I Want to Be a Scottish Princess: Shawl, Skirt, Jacket and Brooch


Maxine waited patiently on the bluffs of Scotland for her new swain, Ian...she tiptoed to the end of the cliffside, the wind gently buffering her gorgeous shawl...she pulled it tightly as she finally spotted his face, ruddy from the his hand was a small velvet box...he gallantly dropped to one knee and presented an heirloom claddagh as he asked for Maxine's hand in marriage...

Ladies, you won't find anything else like this beautiful suit and shawl anywhere, on any vintage clothing site! It's made by the famous Doncaster, and features a wool pencil skirt, lovely jacket with velvet trim and velvet buttons, and a breathtaking large shawl to match!

The plaid is done in shades of purple, black, pink, and teal green. I've tried to do some research on it, but I don't know what particular clan this plaid pattern represents. The shawl has immaculate fringe, and the pencil skirt has two slash pockets and a back slit for walking comfort. The suit is fully lined. 100% wool, dry clean only.

I've shown it worn in a variety of ways (white blouse not included), but for the buyer, I will throw in the vintage brooch for FREE! The shawl also looks cute pair with black skinny jeans and a turtleneck sweater - this is *such* a pretty and versatile outfit! The jacket features large 80s-style shoulderpads.
