1940s knit set . vintage 40s knit suit
A vintage 1940s set with a top and skirt. The top has puffed sleeves and buttons with a single button at the waist. The skirt has an elastic waist. Both pieces are lined (though the top sleeves are not lined, and the lining is only attached in a handful of places). The periwinkle knit fabric is a heavy knit and feels like wool.
Size: xs to small
Bust: approximately 34" (will fit smaller, but while there is some flexibility because of the knit, I wouldn't push the bust measurement past 35")
Waist: 28" (measured on exterior)
Length: 21.5" to hem and 16" to natural waist
Waist (unstretched to stretched): 25-34"
Hip: 33-35" (the lining restricts the hip measurement, but if lining were removed, the hip measurement would stretch further).
