1940s summer weight suit appears to be a linen and wool woven blend in brown and cream. Jacket features tucks at the shoulder, notched collar trimmed with chocolate brown velveteen, self covered buttons, waist tucks and pockets with notches that match the collar. Lightly padded shoulder and three quarter length sleeves with a small cuff. Pencil skirt closes at side with a metal zipper topped with a plastic button at the waistband.

Condition

Very Good condition rating a 7 out 10. The underarms have the slightest of yellowing. I didn't notice it when purchasing or photographing this suit. Only when carefully pouring over it for flaws. There is the very slightest of strain at the waist tucks in the jacket. One small hole with a period repair can be found in the sleeve under the arm near the seam.
