1950s Vintage Women's Navy Blue Suit by Tween Craft
Lovely vintage 1950s suit by Tween Craft. Navy blue trimmed in white stitching. The jacket has 3/4 sleeves and turned cuffs. The skirt has a side metal zipper and back vent. Both pieces are not lined. The skirt is in excellent condition. The jacket hem has been sewn back up with modern hem tape, it has an old patched mend on the side under the arm and shows a little fading inside the collar at the back of the neck, see both in last photo.
No fabric content tag. Looks like rayon or a silk blend. Fabric has a nubby texture.
There is no size tag. Shown fitting loosely on a modern US size 12 dress form and the skirt was clipped in the back for fit and shape. Please refer to the measurements listed below which were taken while set was laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
