Age: 1940s, early 1950s

Description: This is a vintage 40s era women's suit made of tartan patterned wool. The jacket of this suit has padded shoulders and tapers slightly at the waist. It has a black velvet covered collar and there is a faux flapped pocket at either side also covered in black velvet. The jacket closes with six matching cloth covered buttons down the front. Buttoning the top buttons is optional (note photos). The jacket is fully lined in tan colored rayon taffeta fabric. The skirt does up with a metal zipper at the side, a button at the waistline, and is unlined. It is cut with a flare towards the bottom. It has a wide pleat at the bottom front and back of the skirt.
Color: Red, green and white
Material: Wool with rayon lining
Sizing: No size is indicated, as I believe it is custom made. Still, this should fit a small to medium size. Please note the following measurements, taking the thickness of the wool into account:
Shoulders: 15" across shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves: 25" from shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeve Inseam: 14 1/2" long
Bust: 38" around, taken under the arms
Waist: 32" around
Overall length: 24", measured laying flat
Waist: 28" - 29" around
Hips: 41" around, but meant to fall loosely
Overall length: 30", measured laying flat
It is in very good condition with the exception of a small, 3/16" tear to the fabric of the skirt, to the left of the top of the front pleat, and a very small hole at the back of skirt at the hemline measuring less than 1/4 of an inch - a small stitch, invisible mending or backing patch would take care of these. Otherwise, there is other no wear, tear, stains or odors - this suit was well cared for over the years..
This is a wonderful plaid suit.....nice style and striking pattern.....
