RESERVED FOR SENDI - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - Original 1940s 40s Vintage Burgundy Wine Micro Check Suit
RESERVED FOR SENDI - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE
This incredible suit was made in the 1940s from lightweight wool in a burgundy micro check pattern. The fabric has a subtle iridescence, which leads us to believe that the fabric may have been blended with silk. The suit is cut in a classic 1940s silhouette with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The collarless design further enhances the strong shoulder line and the neckline has been adorned with a simple yet elegant V notch on each side. This V notch detail is mirrored on the functional waist pockets. The jacket fastens with a single line of three burgundy buttons and turn up cuffs finish off the sleeves. Inside, the jacket is lined in black faille but does not have any maker’s labels. The matching skirt is cut to a flattering longer length and fastens with a metal side zipper and hook closure above.
Shoulders: 15 1/2” seam to seam
Length: 30 1/2” plus 1 3/4” hem
The suit is in very good condition with only a few small marks and nibbles as pictured.
