Wonderful pure wool suit from the 1950s.
Labelled "Two Owls by Fashion Sport" this piece is made from medium weight wool tweed in lavender, grey, soft green and blue. The jacket is smartly tailored with a nipped in waist and little pockets and the skirt is pleated and fastens on the left side with a metal zip.
A truly stylish piece.

Very good with a couple of minor points to note;
- the inner waistband has little rubber bumps which help keep the skirt in position, some of these have perished
- there are a number of old darns in the piece. They are felt when you run your hand over the fabric rather than seen as they are lost within the pretty tweed and only noticed on close inspection
- there are a few small holes in the lining
- minor underarm discolouration
- underarm lining repairs
