LADIES SUIT. Donegal Tweed. Made in Ireland. Fabulous Quality!!! Excellent condition.

This two piece ladies outfit is 100% Wool, Donegal tweed, and was made in Ireland by Hourihan of Dublin. The quality cannot be surpassed! Donegal tweed will wear forever with little or no signs of wear. This is a classic style which can be worn with chic and distinction for years.

The fully lined, slightly A-line skirt is gently gathered at the waist into a narrow band with a center back zipper, invisibly inserted, and with a 13" kick pleat at center back. There are two invisible pockets inserted into the side seams. (The kick pleat is generous enough so that the skirt can be shortened and still keep it's style.)

The fully lined jacket buttons down the front with a concealing placket over the buttons. It has two front pockets with flaps but there are entered from the side at an angle. It has a Nehru-styled collar and wide, bat-wing sleeves descending from the shoulder. The bottom is slightly gathered and elasticized.

Measurements: It is labeled a size 10, but the jacket with the wide sleeves will easily fit a size 12.

Bust: 34" (the model has a 34" bust) Waist: 28" (the model has a 28" waist) Hip: 40"

Skirt length: 28" Sleeve length: 23" Nape to bottom of jacket: 24"

Condition: Jacket: Mint. No signs of wear anywhere. Lining in excellent condition, also.

Skirt: Mint. No signs of wear anywhere to the tweed. The skirt lining is wearable, but torn, and should be replaced. Easily done by a competent seamstress.

Please view all photos as they give an accurate description of the wonderful condition and quality. More are available if needed. Email if you have any questions regarding size.

This is a wonderful buy. The fabric alone, today, would be several times the cost of this suit.
