Original 1950s 50s Vintage Cornflower Blue Wool Suit By Grey Room
This beautiful suit was made from cornflower blue wool in the early 1950s. It is cut in the classic hourglass silhouette with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The small shawl collar leads to a single row of six fabric covered buttons which fasten the jacket. The shoulders of the jacket have been adorned with a swirly stitch detail and a diamanté centrepiece. There are small functional slit pockets at the waist and the sleeves have been finished off with turn up cuffs. Inside, the jacket is lined in blue crepe and has a maker’s label for Grey Room. The matching skirt is cut in a longer length and fastens with an original metal side zipper and a hook closure above.
Shoulders: 15 1/2” seam to seam
Length: 28 3/4” plus 2” hem
The suit is in good condition, however there is a mark near the hem of the skirt. This may lift with soaking it dry cleaning, otherwise the skirt could be shortened to hide it.
