This fantastic lightweight fine black wool tweed suit was brought to me in a giant bag filled with mostly cotton dresses made by one woman in the 1940s and 50s. She also made this well tailored suit. Details include:

Jacket
-Asymmetrical faux double breasted front
-Self covered buttons
-Notched and cuffed sleeves
-Heavily darted waistline
-Vented back seam with sewn in weights
-Lined in black satin entirely hand-stitched into the jacket as well as the sleeve lining

Skirt
-A line shape with inverted back pleat
-Waistband lined with grosgrain ribbon
-Metal side zipper with three hook and eyes at waist
-Unlined skirt
-Pinked seams

Photos have been lightened to show details. Suit is pitch black.
