This stunning skirt suit was made from a rich burgundy wool gabardine in the 1940s. The suit has a wonderful 1940s silhouette created by combining a nipped waist with strong padded shoulders. The downwards facing scalloped collar is decorated with contrasting white stitching which has been mirrored on the fabulous detailing at the waist. This detailing is also adorned with three fabric covered buttons on each side and a single row of five matching buttons fastens the jacket. Inside, the jacket is lined in red faille and does not have any maker’s labels. The matching skirt has stunning darting to the hips, is cut to a flattering longer length and fastens with an original metal side zipper and press stud closure above.

The suit is in very good condition with only a few tiny pinholes and faint marks as pictured. There is also a small section of a loose seam near the hem of the skirt and some slight discolouration to the jacket lining at the underarms.
