The lines are simple for this california tailored late 1940s, but the color and details are bold. Made of a worsted wool with defined weave, it is a deeply saturated berry color. External felled seams define the lines of the jacket, and huge self-fabric buttons close it up the front. This is a perfect suit to pair permanently with a huge fur collar - the neckline is simple, and the color and details can stand up to it. The jacket is lined with a gloss peach satin. The skirt has six gores, and is just barely flared. It closes on the side with a study metal zipper.

This suit has been drycleaned and is ready to wear. The weave of wool seems a little given to snags, and there are some tiny little pulls scattered throughout. There's also some minor surface moth nibbles, and one frayed moth chew on the skirt that I've stitched up (right along the back right left skirt seam.) There's a single small spot on the skirt at the left that didn't completely come out. The suit wears beautifully, though, and is priced with flaws in mind.
