This stunning vintage 1940's suit is true to the era: cut to flatter and loaded with details.

Don't miss the horseshoe-shaped detail on the collar and neat, fabric-covered buttons.

Fabric is cocoa-colored wool. The jacket is fully-lined with matching satin and the back upper half of the skirt is also lined. Skirt features a set-on waistband and a side metal zipper.

"A Present Vogue" label.

Jacket measures 36" at the bust and 30" at the waist. It is 24" long from back neck to bottom. Sleeves are 23" from shoulder to wrist, taking into account the upturned cuff. Measured across the top back between sleeve seams, the jacket measures 16".

Skirt measures 28" at the waist and 40" at the hip (9" down from waist). It is 27" long.

As is typical of vintage wool garments, this suit has some moth damage. Thankfully, it is minimal. There is a small cluster of pin-head sized holes over the right hip of the skirt, as pictured. I found another, center back of the skirt and one more over the right breast (also pictured). In this last pic, there is a small light spot above and to the left of the hole. It is not a hole, but I could not remove it from the fabric and it appears to be just a light thread. I found one more small hole on the back of the jacket near the hem. There is some light fading of the satin lining under the arms in the jacket, which is not visible from the outside.

Please note the color of the close-up shots is lighter in order to show detail. The true color of this suit is dark, cocoa brown, most correct in the full-length shots.
