Women's Wool 1940s Suit Size Large Gray Wool Tweed. Note: There is color reflection from my background in some of the pictures. The color of this suit is perfect. Minty condition and so era specific.
Measurements in inches for both pieces are below:
Jacket: Bust 38, waist 32, hip 35 (across hemline), across upper back 16, sleeve 22-1/2 with cuffs turned up and length from centerback to hem is 25 inches.
Skirt: Waist 28, hip 42, length 31 with a 1 inch hem allowance.
One piece jacket is fully lined in rich rayon crepe. Collar and hem are shaped and echo the lines of the faux breast pockets and small hip pockets, which are lined.
Set in sleeves are wrist length. They have a short "wing" cuff that may be turned up for extra length.
Triple darted waist to accentuate the classic 1940s silhouette following World War II. Detail top stitching on pockets.
Original gray Lucite buttons and beautifully tailored buttonholes.
One piece, unlined skirt has top stitched waistband, with button and metal zipper closure.
Wool fabric is of medium weight blending shades of gray in a subtle weave to avoid a flat presentation.
Labels: 100% WOOL, SUPER-FINE WORSTED, tailored for Lipman Wolfe & Co.
No holes, weak seams, or signs of significant wear to either piece. Neck label is silk woven and does show a tiny bit of wear.
This suit has been dry cleaned and is ready to wear. Condition is Above Excellent. Zipper works great.
