"Jacobson" Vintage 1940's Two Tone Wool Skirt Suit UK 8 US 4

A classic silhouette rendered in a stunning lightweight wool, this 1940's tailored skirt suit is the perfect addition to your vintage wardrobe.

The V shaped neckline of the jacket is framed by a strong shoulder line, with shoulder pads sewn into the shoulder seams. Her full length sleeves are framed with turned up cuffs in a soft brown contrasting fabric. Her fitted bodice is accented by Princess seams that run along the length, and frame the elegant stylised button fastenings, accented by mock panel inserts. Her cinched in waistline, is set off by the longline cut of the jacket, that sits perfectly above the simple cut panelled skirt.
The jacket is lined in silk
