This exceptional Edwardian suit dates to the late teens, c. 1918-1919. The quality, attention to detail and tailored styling are unmistakable. The long jacket features structured shoulders, cuffed sleeves, and cutaway styling. The lower back is pleated. Elegant soutache decorates the cutaway and the cuffs. The back of the jacket is gathered at the attached belt, which has a separate piece which buttons across the front. The entire piece has beautiful early buttons - all matching, from the cuffs, to the button placket, to the skirt. The skirt features unique attached side pockets with accent buttons, and center buttons for the detail - in the last photo, this is turned center to better illustrate. The waistband is lined with padded boning. It closes with a series of hook and eyes.

Condition: Good
The fantastic blue and white checkerboard silk with which the jacket is lined is broken and shattering, and should be replaced, if one wishes to wear it without damaging the existing lining further. There is one moth chew on the upper left arm, and one on the back right shoulder. The left arm has fade along the back side, below the elbow - you can see this in the first photo.

The skirt is missing two buttons, one at the front, and one at the back. The silk lining/binding that covers the padded bones at the waist has some breakage along the edges.

Despite the weakness of the silk components, the piece is very sturdy and the wool is still entirely wearable. A rare and striking piece.
