This beautiful vintage 1940's 2-piece suit made from a cool grey wool tweed is just the thing to top off your retro look for the day.

The unlined slight A-line skirt has a 1" waist band & opens on the left side with a rust-free metal zipper & there are side front & side back darts for shape.

The awesome jacket has a great assemetrical look with a "lapel" on the right side. With bust & waist darts in the front, and princess seams in the back, the jacket has a great feminine shape which is enhanced by the peplum with pockets & pocket flaps. The back of the peplum has faux side back vents and the sleeves end in a 1 3/4" wide cuff. The jacket closes with 5 plastic buttons center front (a matching one holds the "lapel" back" & the look is completed with a 3/4" wide self belt. The lining in the jacket is discolored and has a tear at the left shoulder and is rotting so it should either be removed or replaced. There are a couple of moth holes in the back of the jacket but these are very small &, I feel, do not subtract from the wearability of this sharp looking suit (see final photo). Fading on the tops of the shoulders is also visible in the first photo.

Original labels in the jacket read "Meyers Lexington, KY.", "London, W.I. A.J. IZOD LTD. By appointment American reproduction by David Crystal" & "Betty Linnery" in the skirt.

This suit fit the pictured dress form with the perfect amount of ease. The dress form measures: 37" at the bust, 28" at the natural waist, 38" at the full hip.

Skirt Measurements:
Waist: 29"
Hip: 41"
Waist to hem: 33" (with a 1 1/4" in the hem)
Circumference of hem: 50"

Jacket Measurements:
Across Shoulders: 15 1/2"
Sleeve Length (to end of cuff): 24"
Bust: 40"
Waist: 33"
Hip: 42"
Center back neckline to hemline: 24"
Side Seam: 15 1/"
