Beautifully tailored original vintage 1940s wartime skirt suit, in muted dark blue wool with a fine royal blue and grey pinstripe.
The jacket has shoulder pads Joan Crawford would be proud of, darts for a nipped fitted waist, fab notched wide lapels and four deco buttons to fasten. There is a flap pocket at each hip. Fully lined.
The knee length skirt has an invisible waistband, hip darts and poppers to fasten at the side. It has three topstitched pleats to the front and one to the centre back.
Over all in superb condition for its age. Lining at one armpit seam has been stitched and there are two tiny pinhead-sized holes to the lower skirt on very close inspection. Otherwise great!
As usual with skirt suits, the skirt waist comes up smaller than the jacket so please check the measurements carefully.
