Heather blue floral vintage 1950s summer skirt suit
Beautiful suit for a vintage wedding, special occasion or as a 'going away' outfit! In heather blue acetate fabric with a pretty overlaid floral print in white, primrose yellow, pink and teal.
Tailored jacket with elbow length sleeves, nipped waist, narrow shawl collar and three buttons to fasten.
Matching pencil skirt with vent to the back hem, fitted waistband and metal zip and hook closure to the side.
Unlined suit, summer weight fabric.
best fit approx a modern UK 6 (skirt) or up to UK 8/10 (jacket)
jacket measures 23" long / 15.5" across the shoulders / 17" sleeves / 37" bust / 28" waist
skirt measures 24" waist / 28" long
In very good condition for its age. The skirt has had the hook moved slightly as the fabric under the hook has torn from use (hidden when worn). The skirt has been professionaly taken in approx 1" at the side for the original owner.
The jacket is in great shape but ever so slightly more of a purplish hue to the sleeves in certain light, natural aging of the fabric. Priced accordingly, but very minor issues.
