Vintage 1960s Pinstripe Wool Blend Skirt Suit Size Small


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a very attractive pinstripe wool blend suit consisting of a jacket and skirt.  The jacket has high set wide notched lapels, an applied square patch pocket at either lower side and closes with two buttons.  The closure is cutaway, so that when the jacket is closed, the lapels overlap.  The skirt closes at the back with a nylon zipper and button and has a notch opening at the centre front. The wool is made with a silver grey pinstripe on a black background.  Both pieces are fully lined in black acetate.  Please note that the suit was too small for my mannequin, so fit poorly
