Absolutely gorgeous 1940s black wool suit.
Glorious shaping with the classic broad shoulders of the era and nipped in waist. The jacket is fully lined and has a wide collar detail which is trimmed with little buttons, and the pocket flaps are trimmed with the same buttons. The waist has a single button fastening.
The pencil skirt is unlined and has front pockets. It fastens with a metal zip and hook and eye.

Very good with a couple of minor points to note;
- there are some small repairs on the cuff of the right sleeve
- the buttons on the waist don't match the small buttons on
- there is a very faint mark on the skirt
