Original 1940s 40s Vintage Burgundy Gab Gabardine Skirt Suit With Western Yoke
This wonderful suit was made from a rich burgundy gabardine in the 1940s. It was cut in a classic 1940s style with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist, which give the wearer a stunning hourglass silhouette. The small rounded off collar complements the high neckline and marks the beginning of a row of four fabric covered buttons running down the front of the jacket. Matching fabric covered buttons decorate the beautiful double pocket flaps at the hip. The shaped shoulder yolk at the back and matching panelling you the front of the shoulders gives the jacket a bit of a Western vibe. Inside, the jacket is lined in crepe and does not have any maker’s labels. The skirt is cut in a longer length straight style
and fastens with a metal side zipper and button closure above.
Shoulders: 16 1/2” seam to seam
Length: 30” plus 2” hem
The suit is in excellent condition with no issues to note. Apologies but the colour is just impossible to capture correctly, the cover photo is closest to its real life colour.
