This is a charming little piece which is perfect for the autumn.
Made in the 1950s from medium weight pure wool, it has a close fitting bodice with beautiful seaming detail in the front, three quarter length sleeves, a pleated skirt , boat neck and a tie belt trimmed with yellow paste set buttons. It has a 21" metal back zip.
It is labelled a size 36 which means it is meant for a 34-26-36.
Shoulders up to 15"
Shoulders to waist 16"
Shoulders to hem 41"
Very good with some minor points to note;
- 3 small darns on the back left shoulder
- 1cm darn on the right underarm sleeve seam
- 1cm darn in the skirt - lost within the pleats
- 2 pinhead holes in the skirt when it is held up to the light
