Original Late 1940s 40s Vintage Red Tweed Suit By Moordale
This gorgeous suit was made from a red wool tweed in the late 1940s / early 1950s. It is cut in a classic hourglass silhouette with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The small notched collar leads to a row of four fabric covered buttons running down the centre of the jacket. Wonderful geometric accents highlight the faux waist pockets and the jacket flared out slightly at the hem creating a peplum effect. Inside, the jacket is lined in red crepe but has lost its maker’s label. The skirt is partially lined at the back and fastens with an original metal side zipper and button above. Inside, it has a maker’s label for Urban Suburban by Moordale.
Bust: 34” (tight 36”)
Shoulders: 14 3/4” seam to seam
Length: 25” plus 1” hem
The suit is in very good condition with only a couple of darns and a little wear to the lining as pictured.
