1950s Cotton suit with fitted jacket and flared skirt in a throw back Victorian Styling; size small. Minty condition with a wonderful print on medium weight cotton. So fun to re-visit the Victorian Era, as designers did in the mid 50s.
Measurements in inches: Unlined Jacket: Bust 34 (gussets under the arms) waist 28, across bottom hem 26, across upper back 15, sleeve 17, length from center back to hem 17-1/4 inches
Unlined Skirt: waist 24, hip up to 36, length 26 with a 2-1/2 inch hem allowance. I believe the skirt was shortened in the 1960s. But I am not certain of that.
High neck, once piece jacket closes with 10 black plastic buttons down the front. Tightly darted both front and back. Sleeves are 3/4 length. Fancy black soutache trims the neckline, down the front, cuffs and hem of the jacket.

Medium weight cotton is printed with a peasant style design of pink and red flowers in scalloped circle with red polka dot accents. White polka dots are dashed between the circles. Very sweet print! Colors are vivid!
