Jaeger suit, size 2/4
This vintage brown crushed velvet Jaeger suit is 100% cotton and has a very nice light brown 100% triacetate lining.
It was made in Great Britain and the tags say "10 to fit jacket bust 34 ins. hips 36 ins. skirt waist 25 ins. hips 36 ins.", but it fits like a size 2 to a small size 4.
The jacket has two rows of black piping (one plain and one with an intricate weave pattern) around all the edges.
The long sleeves have roll-up cuffs (the cuffs can be rolled up 2 3/4").
Some of the horizontal piping on the cuffs is a lighter black.
There are three decorative textured gold-tone buttons on each sleeve.
It has a jewel neckline, shoulder pads, and five larger gold-tone buttons down the front.
The skirt has a left side 7 1/2" long zipper and a 1 1/4" wide waistband with a one button and one hook closure.
It has very nice fabric and detailing.
It belonged to a British model.
She bought it at a vintage boutique, but she never wore it.
She sold it because she needed the money.
