Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Mustard Yellow Gabardine Skirt Suit


Vintage early 1940s gabardine skirt suit. Spectacular squared shoulders and nipped waist. Slim lapels and pretty pocket details on the chest. The skirt falls below the knee and is gently A-line in the style of the era. Jacket closes with a single decorative button. Really fabulous pattern cutting through the shoulders for a streamlined effect. Jacket is lined in matching crepe, skirt is unlined. So elegant! The color is truest in the closeups where it is more saturated. It's even lovelier in person.

The flat measurements in the product description are the actual measurements of the garment when laid flat. Double the chest, waist and hip measurements for an idea of fit. Please remember to allow a little "space" in a garment beyond your body measurements for ease and a good fit.

If you are uncertain about fit you can measure a similar garment you own that fits you well and compare the measurements with the product. You can use the image below as a guide.
