This late 1910s / very early 1920s suit is a classic! Lightweight dark navy blue wool. The jacket is slightly A-line with lovely embroidery and meant to be loose fitting. It closes with plastic buttons and a loose attached belt. The collar is wide, similar to a sailor-style collar. The straight, just-above-the-ankle length skirt has a side snap closure and is unlined. While we love the two pieces as a suit, the jacket could also be worn without the skirt as a gorgeous medium-weight winter coat.
Best fits: M for the set; the jacket alone would fit a M/L/XL (see measurements)
Circa: Late 1910s / Edwardian / early 1920s / 1918-1921
Condition: Overall very good. The suit is in amazing, wearable condition (especially considering its age). There are a few small repaired/patched holes on the skirt. There is also a small bit of minor fraying to the embroidery; not terribly noticeable.
