Sunshine Yellow Vintage Early 60s Suit -
What do you say about a suit that's so bright and sunny? How about, "Hello Sunshine?!"
Let's talk details. The suit is from the early 60s. It's made of a wool and is woven in such a way that the warp and weft of the weave actually shows. In other words, it's not a tight weave. It's loose and airy. There may be other fibers in the wool.
Now--the jacket is the key piece here. It's a slightly cropped affair that has some whatchamacallits covering the buttons. They're really interesting shapes that are applied design. Behind each one of those details, there's a hidden button. Neat.
The skirt is slightly a-line in shape. (Moreso than how it looks on our mannequin.) The suit is fully lined in bright yellow crepe.
Brighten everyone's day when you wear this sunny yellow suit. Or, how about just wearing the jacket with a bright color under it? That would be fun. After all, this is so very cheerful.
Very good. This is an odd weave. The wool looks miswoven in a few very tiny places.
Wool, possibly with some crepe. Crepe lining. Fabric Notes:
This fabric is a loose weave that's ever so slightly sheer. Close-ups kind of allude to the way it's woven. It feels like wool, but might be a blend.
