This fabulous three piece knit set was made in the 1950's and is labelled Brittany Club Sports Clothes by Marinette.
Made from boucle wool in cranberry red and French navy it is a machine knitted piece worked in fine stripes.
A smart jumper with single button fastening and a neat collar, the skirt is slim fitting and has an elasticated waist. The piece is finished off perfectly with the original belt.
This piece will best fit up to a 38-30-40 but to ensure that it will fit you properly, please carefully compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 20"
Flat waist 15" stretching to 16"
Underarm sleeve 14"
Cuff to cuff when laid flat 48"
Flat waist 13" stretching to 16"
Flat hip 21"
Good with some points to note;
- there are a number of darns in the piece - one on the front of the left sleeve - three in the back rib of the jumper - 5 in the bodice - 6 in the skirt - they are all small and because of the bobbly texture of the knit they aren't really seen when worn
- the belt will need a popper fitted to secure the end when you know the waist size you need
- the belt has some small holes in it where someone has pocked the buckle prong through
