"Moss Green Wool" Vintage 1940's Moss Green Wool Skirt Suit UK 8 US 4


A classic silhouette rendered in a stunning moss green 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 pointed and notched collar that sets off the double breasted cut, accented by 10 matching wool covered buttons. The strong shoulder line is set off by internally sewn shoulder pads, joining the full length sleeves edged with turned up cuffs. The fitted cut of the jacket boasts Princess seams to either side of the button fastenings, drawing the eye to the cinched in waistline, whilst the back is accented by seam and pleat details. The matching skirt, sits perfectly beneath the jacket. The simple waistband fastens along the side with a hook and eye and a metal zip. The A line panelled cut of the skirt, completes this suit in an iconic 1940's silhouette.

The jacket is lined in silk
