"Yellow & Grey Floral" Vintage 1940's Yellow & Grey Silk Floral Skirt Suit UK 12-14 US 8-10

A rare piece to behold and never again find. This 1940's summer suit, in a palette of soft greys, yellows, black and white, in a bold floral pattern, is perfect for your vintage wardrobe.

The V shaped neckline of the jacket, is framed by rounded lapels. Her 3/4 length sleeves are set off by wide shoulder pads along each shoulder seam. Her tailored cut, cinches in along the waistline, setting off the elegant light peplum cut, with two front pockets, decorated with black button features along each edge, which mimic the black button fastenings along the centre front of the jacket.
The elegant straight cut skirt, sits perfectly beneath the jacket, completing this set in a timeless 1940's silhouette.
This suit is slightly sheer, and would benefit from being worn above a slip to conceal ones modesty.
