Size 8 50s Suit - 1950s Navy Silk with Wonderful Metal Daisy Flower Buttons - Dark Blue Tailored Office Jacket & Matching Skirt - Waist 26.5

$ 159.99

This late 1950s suit is a special one, beautifully buttoned with metal daisy flowers on its trimly tailored jacket. It has mid-century lines to its sacque silhouette, with a small point lapel to the jacket, trimmed in forked grosgrain tails at lapel and waist. The jacket has bracelet length sleeves and shallow waist pockets. Fitted pencil skirt has trios of darts at the front waistband and a simple hem - no kick pleats or slits. Both pieces are fully lined. Late 50s to early 60s by the silhouette, label and zipper, though the fabrics and buttons read like a 1940s suit.
