Description
Woman's suit, c.1920. Copper coloured cotton twill with blue silk crepe chiffon. Long sleeved cardigan, a-line calf length skirt, blue buttons and blue embroidery. The suit consists of a cardigan style jacket with a false shirt panel, and a skirt. The cardigan has a collar that extends to its hem past the hips. Here there is a round weight on each side to help the jacket hold its shape. Halfway down the jacket, on each side of the 'collar' there are two sets of four chiffon covered buttons. Under the collar, it is lined with blue chiffon. The back of the jacket has four small pleats secured with some tacks. There is a belt loop on either side of the waist, but no belt currently. The sleeves are also lined with blue chiffon in the cuffs, and hand embroidered on the outside in an abstract pattern with blue floss. There is also embroidery in lines down the centre front panel that joins each side of the cardigan. It closes with snaps on the left side, and is lined with white silk striped with blue. The skirt has an grosgrain waistband that closes with three hooks and eyes, and three snaps in the closure below. There are two slightly flared panels, one in front and one in the back. The whole waist is gathered, the back more so. The front has a large abstract blue embroidery motif. The skirt extends to calf length. Seams are finished with pinking, and huge seam allowances.
