Original 1940s 40s Vintage Red Fallie Skirt Suit With Long Line Jacket By Lil Alice
This fabulous skirt suit was made from red faille in the 1940s. The suit was cut in a classic hourglass silhouette featuring padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The nipped waist is further emphasised by the fabulous panelled construction and the huge peplum on the unusual longer length jacket. The high collarless neckline marks the beginning of a line of eight fabric covered buttons which run down to the waist. The three quarter length sleeves are perfect for wearing gloves and finish off the jacket in style. Inside, the jacket is partially lined at the peplum, features detachable shoulder pads and the cutest maker’s label for Lil Alice. The skirt is straight cut in a classic 1940s shape and closes with an original metal side zipper and button above.
Waist: 25” with 1” room to move button out
Length: 28 1/2” plus 2 1/2” hem
The suit is in very good condition with only a few very light marks to the skirt as pictured.
