This hand knit 1930s jacket and skirt set is one of the most special and unique that I have found in all my years of selling vintage! It was made around 1936 by a woman who taught knitting classes in Wilkinsburg, a suburb of Pittsburgh. See last photo for a picture of her and some of her students!

FEATURES:
- a long duster that can function as either a sweater or a jacket. It's got a slightly a-line shape, slit pockets, dark green bakelite buttons that echo the spiderweb-like shape of the collar, and a dramatic pleated back! This duster is truly something special.

- matching pleated skirt with elastic waist

- the yarn — in shades of green, black, and cream— feels like a wool blend. I'm moderately wool sensitive and I don't find it bothersome. It's a very cozy set!

 

FITS LIKE: S/M

BUST: 46-50”
WAIST: 49-54” jacket; 24-32” skirt (keep in mind this will have to pass over your hips. I’m a 39” hip and was able to wiggle in comfortably, but 40” is probably the max UNLESS you re-elasticize it. Which could easily be done!
HIP: 41-48”
LENGTH: 34” jacket; 30” skirt

SLEEVE: ~ 22.5”

FLAWS: two rust spots on the skirt. Three rust spots near the hem of the jacket on the front. A couple inconspicuous mends. Presents perfectly!
