RESERVED FOR SENDI - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 1 OF 2 - due 16th October 2020
This fabulous suit was made in the 1940s from periwinkle blue wool gabardine. It was cut in a classic 1940s hourglass silhouette with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist emphasised with clever princess darting. The super sharp dagger collar leads to a line of nine fabric covered buttons which are used to fasten the jacket. The hem of the jacket is slightly padded giving a beautiful shape to the piece. Inside, the jacket is lined in taupe crepe and has a maker’s label for Miron wool styled by Swansdown. The skirt is cut in a slight A line style and closes with an original metal side zipper and button fastening above.
Shoulders: 16 1/2” from edges of shoulder pads (no shoulder seams)
Length: 29 3/4” plus 1 3/4” hem
The suit is in very good condition, however there are a few faint marks as pictured as well as an underarm repair and some pinholes to the lining.
