This two-piece vintage outfit was worn by the character "Lois Stoner" portrayed by actress Elizabeth Ashley in the hit television series “Mission Impossible” starring Peter Graves. The costume consists of a light brown and blue-flecked Joseph Magnin V-neck long sleeve top with blue striping on the left sleeve and a light brown ankle length button front skirt by Norman Todd. Ms. Ashley wore the garments in “Encounter” (Season 6, Episode 7).
In the episode, the IMF team abducts Lois and forces her to dry out in seclusion while replacing her with their disguised agent "Lisa Casey" (Linda Day George). Acting as the inebriated Lois, Agent Casey creates the impression that she could become a potential threat to her husband's mafia associates by turning informant, which the team hopes will in turn force him into turning against the mob for his own protection. “Encounter” aired on Oct. 30, 1971 and Ms. Ashley received critical praise for her guest star performance in the episode.
The garments are in very good screen worn condition and both are complete with the original Paramount wardrobe labels sewn inside with the name “Elizabeth Ashley” written in slightly faded ink.
Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house.
