This piece was custom made for a lady from an original 1930s pattern. It has been beautifully made with great attention to detail.
Made from lightweight wool check in two tone brown, the jacket is fully lined with turn back cuffs, wide lapels and a smart belt. The skirt is slim fitting, unlined, and fastens with an original vintage metal zip.
The lady had this custom made to fit her at 44-36-46 and the belt is set to her size with no additional holes. The belt hole is at 38" but this is a bulky suit and the belt has to fasten over lots of layers of fabric. Please go by the skirt size to make sure this will fit.
To ensure this piece will fit you properly, we recommend that you compare the following measurements to a similar suit you already own.
All our measurements are taken on the outside of the garment.
Flat bust 24"
Flat waist 19”
Length 25” - Shoulder to centre belt 15"
Underarm sleeve length 18”
Shoulders between sleeves 17"
Flat waist 18"
Hip measured 8” down from the top of the waistband is 25"
Very good with a couple of minor points to note;
- there are three small darns in the skirt
- there is a stain on the front of the skirt where the original owner dropped food on it! Neither she nor I has tried to remove the stain.
