Incredible Late 1930s 30s / Early 1940s 40s Off White Double Breasted Wool Skirt Suit
This amazing suit was made from an off white cream wool in the late 1930s / early 1940s. The suit was cut in the sharp silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a gently nipped waist. The sharp notched lapel collar leads to a double breasted closure featuring four fabric covered buttons set high up the bust. Mock pockets flaps decorate the waist and the sleeves have been adorned with three fabric covered buttons each. Inside, the blazer is lined in white crepe. The matching skirt was cut in a flattering A line shape and fastens with press studs on the side. The skirt features a large kick pleat at the centre front and back with decorative arrow stitching at the top.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Length: 27 1/2” plus 4 1/2” hem
The suit is in very good condition with only a few tiny marks as pictured as well as a seam split and some marks to the lining.
