Original 1940s 40s Vintage Pink Starched Cotton Skirt Suit By Duchess Royal
This pretty pink summer suit was made from a starched cotton in the 1940s. As you would expect from a garment of this decade, the suit has a classic hourglass silhouette created by combining padded shoulders with a shape defining nipped. A v-neckline is framed with a notched collar and points towards a single row of four buttons. Two functional bodice pockets are adorned with scalloped decorative flaps, while the bottom of the jacket has a number of decorative slits to the front and back. Inside, the jacket is lined in acetate and has a maker’s label for Duchess Royal.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Waist: Tight 26”
Length: 28 1/2” plus 1 1/2” hem
The suit is in very good condition, however there are some very faint marks to the skirt and the back of the collar and some seam stretching to the lining.
