1940s Hunter Green Skirt Suit with Peplum Jacket | S/M
late 1940s vintage
approx. size small/medium
length to waist: 16"
total length: 23"
length: 31 1/2"
nicely tailored in a light rayon/wool blend of hunter green. the jacket with shoulder padding and sculptural peplum, fully lined in celery green satin. the modified a-line skirt with flattering curved waist yoke (skirt unlined).
closure: jacket has two gold tone coin buttons, one fastens one is decorative. skirt with metal zip and hook and eye.
fit note: on the dress form the skirt is positioned with the zipper in the back, on the model it is positioned with the zipper on the side. this changes the way the yoke seam presents. it wasn't done on purpose, but I think it can be worn which ever way you prefer!
condition: very good. set is freshly dry cleaned + presents great. some little hints of wear- a few fabric picks, decorative button could be fastened to jacket a little tighter. I noted some light metalic/inky spots on the skirt side/back and one sleeve that "show up" in bright natural light, and one little light blue spot on collar. see final image for largest inky spots on skirt- please note fabric color is not correct! lining has some faint toning.
