1930s Cosiworn vintage knitted two piece skirt suit with felt appliqués AS IS
Original 1930s ivory knit suit, labelled Cosiworn. I think this is almost certainly pure wool, with original felt appliqués to tie neck. Skirt is fitted with side snaps to fasten.
- This came with a lot of items some years ago, and despite looking like it had barely been worn (appliqués so bright!) it had suffered numerous moth nibbles. I freeze treated it twice, washed, steamed, and then my lovely mum sat and did numerous basic darns just so I could wear it. The skirt is far worse than the jacket, so jacket could be worn as separate item (still has some mends - see all pics).
- There are some age marks in the wool appearing as lines where it's yellowed slightly. Didn't dare soak due to felt.
- I've think I may have replaced the buttons with old stock ones of the same period (can't actually remember), and the belt is not original but only a few years later in date.
- Mark to cuff as shown
Selling as wounded but structurally wearable - as costume, or for everyday if you are as determined a vintage wearer as me, flaws and all!
