The quintessential 1950's fashion! Vintage, aqua blue and cream tweed fabric were fashioned into this suit. The restricted swing box jacket with a rounded collar and large buttons is worn over a pencil skirt - the definition of 1950's vintage!

The narrow skirt has a side metal zipper with an underlying placket, and a kick pleat in the back. It was constructed with the lining as an interlining instead of loose. The seams are pinked. There is only a very small hook and eye, and if you would prefer, I can replace that with a larger skirt hook and eye.

The suit was handmade and I finished the jacket by sewing in the lining (I'm a professional seamstress). I left the basting in place, but you can remove it if you wish (or ask me to). I also replaced the buttons. There was one original one missing and I couldn't find a match, so found these wonderful replacements!

The jacket is 31.25 inches (79.5 cm) long and the skirt is 26.25 inches (66.8 cm) long. The following measurements are taken flat, from side to side:

Jacket -
bust: 21.5 inches (54.8 cm)
waist: 22.5 inches (57.3 cm)

Skirt -
waist: 14.25 inches (36.8 cm)
hips: 20 inches (51 cm)

These pieces are in excellent condition. I believe this outfit was never worn. There are no tags. It is probably wool, but could be a wool blend.

My size 8 model is 5 feet 5 inches (1.66 m).
Her measurements are
bust: 33 inches (84 cm)
waist: 29 inches (73.8 cm)
hips: 39.5 inches (100 cm)
