This elegant vintage suit comprises a fully lined short jacket and fully lined cap sleeved dress with concealed rear zip. The jacket fastens with three pairs of linked buttons covered in the same fabric, and features two decorative permanently fixed buttons on the collar.
The flares in the skirt are topped securely with triangular details embroidered in place.
Please note that there are some marks on this item; the detail photo shows one such mark, faintly orange in colour and approx 1.5 cm in diameter, just above and left of the embroidery on the front of the skirt. There is another similar mark on the front of the dress, which is concealed when the top button of the jacket is done up. There is also a slightly lighter patch across the shoulders of the jacket, presumably fading from the time the item has been stored. Unfortunately there are currently no further photos of these marks as they are only visible in some lighting conditions and the difference is quite a low contrast - meaning that they are not necessarily particularly significant, and that they are difficult to photograph.
