1970s does 40s Red polka dot skirt suit - Extra small
An adorable little 1970s does 40s skirt suit in creme caramel coloured cotton mix fabric, printed with red polka dots. The original label has been removed but it is very reminiscent of the Miss Mouse/Radley et al designs from this period!

Chest fit 32"
21" mid shoulder to hem
Skirt is flared, with side zip fastening and faced waist
Waist up to 26" tight
Hip up to 38"
Fabulous condition after reconstruction to professionally undo bad alterations (someone hacked the sleeves off leaving them raw, but they are now finished with matching cotton binding tape as pictured- very neat, and you'd never know!). The odd v small faint mark, the back neck has minor discolouration which isn't seen when worn, and the fabric behind one lapel is a little wiggly, confined to the underside however so not seen on.
