1940's/50's Wool Tweed Flecked Skirt 2 Pc Suit Handmade


Classic looks never go out of style. This handmade 1940s/50s skirt suit is so lovely and is one of a kind!

-Dark brown flecked wool tweed (I photographed it in the sun, so some shots make it look lighter than it is), with hints of orange and blue.
-Jacket is lined with orange satiny fabric. Skirt is not lined
-Large front pockets on the jacket (you could easily fit your phone in there!)
-A-line skirt
-Side metal zip closure on skirt with button.
-Dolman style 3/4 sleeves (see photo)

This suit is in excellent vintage condition! I could find no major holes, tears, rips, stains, or other issues. The lining only has minor fading at the armpits. You can also see in the photo that at the waistband, there looks to be an extension added - I do not know if this was intentional when the garment was created, or if it was added later. It does not take away from the wearability of the skirt. There is minor pilling on the fabric, again, not a big deal.

There is NO stretch to this suit, so please note measurements carefully.
