This vintage 2 piece suit is made of a wool plaid in warm shades of brown. The jacket has 3/4 length sleeves that are slightly flared. Three large buttons close the front, while four smaller matching buttons fasten the side straps that cinch in the jacket ever so slightly. It has small shoulder pads and is fully lined. There is some slight discoloration in the lining under the arms. The matching skirt closes on the left side with a 6 3/4" zipper, button, and hook and eye fastener. It has a center pleat in the bottom of the back for ease of movement. The skirt is also fully lined. This suit is in excellent condition.
