Beautiful skirt suit by Eastex in a lovely petroleum blue. Fitted jacket with nipped in waistline and a contrasting black velvet collar. Lovely detailing with curved seams to the shoulder finishing in small arrow stitches. Matching design to the slot pockets on the hip of the jacket. Five small polished shank buttons to fasten. Lined in dark blue. Matching skirt which has a high fitted waistband which fastens with two buttons on either side and concealed hooks and eyes internally to the waistband to secure. Straight cut fit with to small folded pleats to the side seam for movement. Skirt is unlined. Both feels like very fine wool fabric. Great silhouette and such lovely features on this. Approx early 50s era.
The jacket is not labeled with a size but fits approx an XS-S depending on desired fit. Please refer to the measurements for your best fit and please note that you may need to leave a little bit of room for movement depending on desired fit.
Chest: 35.5" (best fit slightly smaller)
Waist: 28" (best fit slightly smaller)
14.5" from shoulder to shoulder
Sleeve: 22" from shoulder to cuff
Sleeve: 15.5" from underarm to cuff
Waist: 25" (the way this does up with buttons and hooks to each side of the waist, I think this would allow for buttons to be moved to make this slightly larger, at least to 26"
Very good condition. Some small handsewn seam repairs to the lining and some tiny tiny pin sized holes to the lining.
