Vintage 80s Basler Size:16 grey & purple check skirt suit

£24.99

Product description

Smart & practical skirt-suit from Basler in a wool fabric with a grey, purple & green tartan check. Made in West Germany, the suit has a boxy jacket & straightish skirt with inverted pleat.
The jacket has a small collar & fastens with 8 buttons at the front: all but the top one & the 2 on the welt are hidden in the plain purple facing. The shoulders, which are lightly padded, have tab epaulettes trimmed with buttons. From the shoulders, front & back, pleats run into the welt. The jacket is softly gathered into the welt which is cut with the check pattern running diagonally in contrast to the rest of the jacket. The sleeves are batwing & pleated into the single button cuffs.
[Please note: there is a small hole almost hidden by the back right shoulder pleat: could be mended].
The skirt has a 1" wide waistband & fastens at the back with a button & hidden zip. It is panelled to give a good fit over the hips & has a central inverted pleat from hip-level. There is a small vent in the pleat at the bottom.
A really attractive suit, very suitable for the workplace but, worn with a pretty blouse, would take you to a variety of daytime events.
Actual measurements: Jacket: Bust 40" length 23" inside sleeve approx 14"
Skirt: Waist 31" lwngth 30"
