Original 1940s 40s Vintage Pink Starched Cotton Summer Skirt Suit
This splendid pink summer suit was made from a starched cotton in the 1940s. The v-neckline is flanked with a large notched lapel collar with rounded edges. The v-neckline marks the beginning of a single line of four pretty round fabric covered buttons. The very same button are found as decorative embellishments on top of a faux waist patch pocket with slit opening. Inside, the garment is unlined and has a maker’s label for Koolskin as well as a dry clean only label.
Shoulders: 14 3/4” seam to seam
Waist: 26” (tight 27”)
Length: 27 1/2” plus 2” hem
The suit is in good condition, however the skirt has a number of marks and stains. The jacket was in similar condition but was greatly improved when dry cleaned, so the marks on the skirt may lift too.
