Original 1950s 50s Vintage Pink Blue Pastel Faille Stripe Ladies Skirt Suit Summer Suit
This wonderful suit was made in a pink and pale blue striped faille in the 1950s. The jacket is cut in a summer suit style with short sleeves with a turn up cuff and is unlined for a looser internal fit. The beautifully understated v-neckline is created by the wrap over styling of the double breasted jacket and is framed with an elegant oversized wing collar. The jacket closes at the waist with a pair of contrasting bronze effect buttons with moulded flowers which have been decorated with diamantés surrounding a pink cabochon centre. The upper part of the jacket is secured with press studs to the inside of the jacket And the skirt closes with a metal side zipper. The shape defining nipped waist is further highlighted by a flattering peplum to the front and back of the jacket.
Bust: up to 40”
Shoulders: 16” seam to seam

The skirt suit is in very good condition, however one of the rear jacket darts has popped open and there are two very faint marks (one in the skirt and one on the jacket) as pictured. One of the jacket press studs is missing its back piece.
