Lovely 40s 2 piece suit by Forstmann. Made from very fine virgin wool gabardine in a midnight blue / dark navy colour. Jacket has a beautiful fitted silhouette with a single breasted front with four covered buttons to the chest. Curved hip patch pockets to either side and a softly rounded shawl lapel. Padded shoulders and long sleeve. Skirt has a high fitted waistband with side metal zipper and button fastener. Fairly straight silhoutte with a back vent for movement. Skirt is unlined but jacket is lined in a brighter blue rayon type fabric. Lovely staple suit, with a stunning, classic 40s, silhouette.
The jacket is not labeled with a size but fits approx a Medium, based on the waist I would estimate a UK12 but it might fit a small UK14 too. 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.
