Sweet Disorder Vintage
1940s Raspberry Wool Skirt Suit
Vintage 1940s skirt suit in a rare shade of raspberry pink. The style and color remind me of Mugler's early 90s designs. Squared shoulders, narrow lapels, and a very contemporary gathered tie waist. The skirt falls just below the knee with a flat front and two kick pleats at the back. The back of the jacket is princess-seamed for an hourglass silhouette. Beautiful matching crepe lining. Label: Gus Blass Co Little Rock and NRA label in the side seam. I almost couldn't believe this was a 40s suit until I saw the NRA label. Clean, vibrant & ready to wear. There is a scattering of shallow moth bites on the sleeves and one shoulder. See photo. Presents flawlessly.
