Original 1940s 40s Vintage Rust Corduroy Summer Skirt Suit
This stunning skirt suit was made from rust coloured corduroy in the 1940s. The large wing collar with airy v-neckline marks the beginning of a single line of six asymmetrically placed gold coloured buttons. There is a single large functional patch pocket to the wearer’s right hand side just below the gently nipped waist. Large turn up cuffs finish off the short sleeves in style. Inside, the garment is unlined and has no labels. The skirt closes with an original side metal zipper and alternatively two buttons or a hook and eye for a slightly wider fit.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Waist: 24” on button fastening, 25” on hook and eye
Length: 28” plus 4 1/2” hem
The garment is in good condition throughout, however there are some tiny marks to the skirt as pictured. We believe that the garment may have been resized as there is evidence of the buttons having been moved and the skirt having alternative closures. The bottom button is likely a replacement but it does not look out of place.
