Original Vintage 1940s 40s Forest Green Skirt Suit With Fabulous Button Details
This stunning suit was made from forest green gabardine in the 1940s. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The sharp collar leads to a single row of thirteen fabric covered double buttons which fasten the jacket. Three matching buttons decorate each of the unusual upside down pockets. Inside, the blazer is lined in brown crepe and has a National Recovery Board tag. The matching skirt fastens with an original metal side zipper and a button closure above.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Length: 28” plus 1/2” hem
The suit is in very good condition with only a slightly bulky seam and some discolouration to the lining as pictured.
