$ 79.00Deep espresso brown lightly boucled two piece suit circa the 1940s, maybe 50s. The jacket is really the star here. It has these fantastic buttons! The sleeves are not quite full length, but a bit longer than 3/4. The bottom hem in front has a slits at either hip. Shoulder pads. Its kind of a shorter, more boxy shape, that makes me think 60s, but the woman I got it from said her mother wore it well before then and there are definitely things about it that make me think she's right. The skirt is A line, has several darts at the waist for a nice shape, and a metal zipper at the side. Both jacket and skirt are lined in what feels like rayon. The body is probably wool. Medium size, I'd say. There are two labels. The designer ones read "Friedmont" and are in both jacket and skirt. Then there is an additional one for the store it was sold at, reads: "Housemans, Grand Rapids".

$ 85.00This is the most interesting piece. From the 50s or probably 60s. I believe its a jacket but it's tailored like a blouse. It could probably be worn as a blouse actually.
