40’s Gabardine Skirt Suit Black White Mini Check$200.00
Massive shoulders call to mind Joan Crawford in Mildred Pierce. This one has it all. It's gray from far away but on close inspection you can see the tiny black & white checks. This wool gabardine jacket is fully lined in satin, has shoulder flanges and curvy tapered waist. Two pockets. The pencil skirt has side metal zipper and classic lines. Unlined, side vents. It's close to perfect. I had to plug up a hole (moth hole?) in the front, center of the skirt (close up shown) also two in back of one sleeve (also shown). From far away, they look like slight irregularites in the fabric.
