50s Vintage Nip Waist Jacket Skirt Suit Fit and Flare M
A flattering feminine vintage 1950s skirt suit with gorgeous subtle details! Jacket is styled with curving princess lines, made even more fitted with vertical darting in front. Shoulders are padded, rounded collar a bit oversized - it can be worn buttoned all the way for a demure look, open for a sportier feel. A pair of horizontal faux welted pockets on each side of the jacket front below the waist, accented by embroidered thread arrows. The upper 6" of the princess seams in front have the same faux welting with arrows at the bottom. The sleeves have vented cuffs. Skirt is fitted with darts and has a 3" inverted kick pleat in the center of the hem. The jacket is fully lined in black crepe, the skirt is unlined.
No size label

Labeled 80% wool, 20% Dacron (the invention of Dacron dates back to the early 40s, but it didn't become commercially available until the early 50s). Medium weight suiting in charcoal gray - the fabric has a bit of a nap and scattered lighter colored wiry fibers.
No makers tag, only a tag for "Fabric by Pacific Mills"
The jacket closes with eight black plastic buttons with a matte finish into bound buttonholes. The skirt has a side seam metal zipper and button at the waist.
Very good. I have repaired a small tear at the top of the kick pleat on the back of the skirt. I don't see any other issues - no stains, holes, tears or moth nibbles.
