Original 1940s 40s Vintage Colour Block Navy And Red Skirt Suit
This fabulous suit was made from wool in the 1940s. It features a stunning colour block design with a red bodice front and a navy blue back, sleeves and skirt. The jacket is cut to a classic 1940s hourglass silhouette with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. It is collarless but has small lapels forming a V neckline which leads to a single row of three fabric covered buttons. Faux bust pockets and a neat V cutout at the hips finish off the jacket in style. Inside, the jacket is lined in navy crepe and is without maker’s labels. The matching skirt fastens with an original metal side zipper and hook and press stud closures above.
Shoulders: 14 3/4” seam to seam
Length: 27 1/2”
The suit is in very good condition with only a few tiny nibbles as pictured.
