c. 1980, an impeccably tailored structured Augustus suit in very dark navy blue (almost black), size 8. This 2 piece suit has tailored gathers at the shoulders for a more feminine touch, and an asymmetrical button closure front with placket covering all buttons except the very top. The jacket has 2 small front pockets (seams never opened), and the sleeves have 2 buttons at the wrist. The straight skirt has small inverted pleats at the waistband, center back zip and button closure, and a long kick pleat at the center back of the skirt. Both skirt and jacket are fully lined.

There is no fabric content tag, but I believe this is a lightweight wool with a very fine weave. Skirt is a longer length popular in the 80s but with an 11" kick pleat, it can be shortened and still have a good pleat at the hem.

The suit is marked a size 8, but please consider the following measurements, taken across the front with the garments lying flat.

Armpit to armpit (bust) - 18"

Sleeve inseam - 16"
