Lavender skirt suit from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Cardigan top has pointed collar knit with the same pebbled stitch as the turn-back cuffs on the three-quarter, raglan sleeves. Wear it closed, as shown, or as a jacket over your own coordinating or contrasting top. Gently A-line skirt has an elasticized tubular waistband. Both pieces unlined. Easy care, vegan-friendly acrylic is high-quality and cozy soft. Fully-fashioned pieces retain their shape over time. This is why we love vintage.
Labels: Roman Stripe
the RN#, 14737, tells us the label was issued in the first half of the first year registered identification numbers were offered to manufacturers -- 1959. This set is likely a bit more recent than that, but it's pre-70s.
Fiber/Care: no tags, acrylic knit, machine washable (and dryable, too!)
Condition: only the subtlest of pilling, and nearly invisible color shift in the underarms.
