This suit is so pretty but please note it is not in perfect condition so please read the condition information properly.
Made in the late 1930s or early 1940s, this lightweight wool piece is in two-tone brown, cream and duck egg blue check.
The unlined skirt is slim fitting on the hips with 6 pleats in the body of the skirt and it fastens with metal zip.
The jacket is fully lined and has a single button fastener and decorative wooden buttons on the faux pocket flaps.
It is such a pretty colour-way.
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.

Underarm sleeve length 16.5”

Wounded but wearable. Points note;
- it looks like someone has made alterations to the skirt and added an insert to the waistband. Not sure where the extra fabric came from but possibly the skirt seam as the checks don't line up properly on the centre skirt seams
- there are 7 pinhead marks in the skirt - see photos
- the underarm lining has been re-sewn
- very minor discolouration on the inner collar, not seen when worn
- 8mm darn on the right lapel - see photo
- a dark mark on the back of the left cuff - see photo
