Size 6 Raspberry Wool Cape & Skirt Suit - 1950s 60s Tartan Plaid Reversible - Mid Century Secretary - Pink Red Gray Tweed - Waist 25.5

$ 179.99

Picturesque 1960s raspberry tweed suit includes a reversible cape and matching pencil skirt, so chic for a mid-century secretary style. The waist-length capelet has a broad wing lapel and double buttons at the neck, reversing from ruddy raspberry wool to a sharp plaid in matching berry pink, gray, and olive chartreuse. This set is a wonderful style from a high quality label seen at dress shops in the 1960s onward... though the look very mid 1950s or a bit later, the label indicates it was made in the late 1960s or 70s. Skirt is fully lined.
