1940s Milgrim Heathered Blue Wool Suit

 

 

 

 

To our sensibilities, this suit has the look of Rosalind Russell in 'Our Miss Brooks'. In a lovely heathered slate blue wool, the bolero jacket is open with a single shell button closure at the neck and deeply turned cuffs on a dolman sleeve. The unlined skirt is straight cut with a side zip closure and slanted hip pockets. The bolero  is lined in red silk crepe, so we especially like this worn with a simple jeweled neck suit blouse in the same shade of red or ivory. Jacket measures: Bust to 46", sleeve (center back to end of sleeve) 24" with a 4" cuff, length 16.5". Skirt waist 28", hip 39", length 28". Both pieces are in excellent condition. $265
