♛Details

•Highlights: suuuuuper hard to source this coveted kind of set; jacket strongly giving Eisenhower/"Ike jacket"/wartime uniform influence; stabby collar; roomy dolman sleeves narrow to knit wool cuffs; chevron-pointed flap breast pockets; cropped cut; matching plastic buttons; matching gored A-line skirt w curved hip pockets; wear together or apart in endless combinations!

Special note: the color was hard to capture but is most like the close-up dress form photos and sits nicely between that classic 1940s forest green and a deep moss

•Fabric(s): cotton corduroy, wool knit cuffs

•Lined: no

•Closures: front buttons, cute apple green old button at side waist + side metal zipper

•Designer/Labels: no

♛Measurements

I believe this was custom-made to fit someone with rockin' waist-to-hip ratio proportions, falling into a roomy M to small-waisted L range

Please allow room for fit and ease and any clothing layered under 

Bust of jacket (measured flat on exterior though underarms where darts sit, then doubled) to about 46"

Waistband of jacket about 31"

Length of jacket about 18"

Shoulders - no seams

Sleeves about 23 1/2"

Armhole circumferences about 18"

Skirt waist about 28"/taut 29" and has an extra 2" on the button tab to help fudge  larger

Skirt hips full/about 45"

Skirt length about 30" and has 1 3/4" hem

♛Condition

Very good vintage shape, presenting beautifully for 75+ years old. Set is clean and pressed. 

To note: has subtle signs of age and use as is normally found in older cotton corduroys. Gently worn with nice character, nothing overt or odd...the photos do a good job depicting her.

The wool knit cuffs have acquired some little holes and imperfections, and one slightly larger split on the outer layer of the knit (textile is doubled to create the cuff). Mainly show up if you stretch the knit to inspect, so I did not attempt to darn or mend.
