1940s Mint Green Metallic 3 Piece Knit Set [sm/med/lrg]

$552.00

Fabulous 1940s mint green 3 piece knit set made from a cotton yarn with metallic threads woven in. The set consists of a cropped blouse, jacket and a matching skirt. The jacket and blouse are adorned with sweet floral appliqués and the entire set is knit in a wide rib. Jacket zips up the front with an awesome matching green metal zipper. Skirt has an elastic waistband woven into the top. 

Overall excellent condition. Som every subtle underarm discoloration on the jacket only that is not at all noticeable. One small mark on the front of the jacket. Otherwise just a couple invisible repairs that blend in. Also worth noting: there are a couple spots on the blouse (mainly at the waistband) where there is a slight color variation which reflects where the maker started a new skein of yarn that looks like it was from a *slightly* different dye batch. I would not consider this a flaw but rather a great reminder that these pieces were are totally made by hand. I find this a wonderful detail that does not at all but detract but rather adds to the beauty of the piece!
