Lincoln Green Wool,
In honour of the fabulous tailoring of the 1940s - this is our take on the forties skirt suit and pays homage to the iconic designer brand of the 40s and 50s - 'Lilli Ann'. If you are looking for that classic 1940s silhouette - then this suit is for you!
This supremely elegant 1940s style suit creates a stunning 40s silhouette via creating strong shoulders and a nipped in waist. This is created by shoulder pads and a peplum.
The tailored jacket has a flattering deep plunge neckline and fastens with 7 covered buttons. Peplum style further creates that nipped in look by enhancing the hip. Skirt is a simple pencil style with button an loop fastening at the waist. Jacket and skirt are fully lined.
We've made this exquisite suit in 100% lambswool from Yorkshire Mill Abraham Moons.

I was on the fence about getting this beauty for the longest time because I was worried it might overwhelm my petite frame (a size 6 would be nice). I finally decided to make the investment anyway and I couldn't be happier. What a 40's dream! A couple of tucks in the waist and I'm ready to look like a film noir femme fatale:D.
Got this in the Peacock colour, and saving up for one in brown as well. Fit is perfect, size spot on, design and fabric is absolutely fabulous!
