Original 1940s 40s Vintage Spring Green Wool Gabardine Gab Skirt Suit By Lyonne
This wonderful skirt suit was made from a spring green wool gabardine in the 1940s. It is cut in the classic 1940s hourglass silhouette with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The sharp botched lapel collar is adorned with decorative stitching at the edge and marks the beginning of a row of three buttons. Clever darting gives further shape to the waist and the functional waist pockets are an added extra. Inside, the jacket is lined in a tan crepe and has maker’s labels for Lyonelle Mides of New York. The gored skirt has a huge box pleat at the front and fastens with a metal side zipper and a button above.
Shoulders: 15 1/2” seam to seam
The suit is in very good condition with only a few barely noticeable marks as pictured and a loose stitch on the decorative collar stitching.
