Here's a gorgeous vintage womens designer skirt suit from the 1950's. Wonderful quality, we just love the fabric! This label is known for quality clothing in the 1950's when this suit was made. The wool is a gorgeous soft charcoal gray & fully lined in pure silk that's a gorgeous soft taupe color. The jacket has 2 fabric weights in the hem around the hips...one sign of high quality tailoring & design. The details are really beautiful. This is a skirt and jacket. The skirt has a metal zipper, the jacket buttons closed in front. We tried on this suit here & the sleeves fell just above the wrist as was the style back then but it has extra wool to lengthen inside. The fit is so wonderful and flattering! It's a true modern US medium.
- We have LAY-A-WAY! - See "Ordering + Lay Away" page for details.
Condition Details: Cleaned at a NON-toxic dry cleaners. No holes or stains. Looks almost new. Worn only 2 times. Only very minor general wear just to inside liner on sleeves. The wool is flawless.
