1930s three piece set consisting of a top, skirt and cropped jacket.  Jacket has puffed sleeves with pointed cuffs and decorative flaps matching the top.  There are not closures and I measured it laying flat with the front nearly closed.  Obviously when worn the front panels would be further spaced.  Top has a button closure with loops.  Skirt is gored, flaring at the hem.  There is a side metal zipper and single hook and eye at the waist.  There is not a separate waistband piece, the gores simply narrow toward the top.

All pieces are in excellent condition.  I noted one tiny spot at the back neck of the top, not noticeable.  Only very slight wear commensurate with age.  The hook and eye at the waist may have been replaced at some point and there is hem tape at the hem.  Again, not sure if it's the original hem.  I did soak the skirt and not the other pieces to avoid color bleed~those pieces were dry cleaned.  The skirt is a shade  lighter than the jacket as a result but it's really not noticeable, especially as the pieces don't touch when worn, Fits like an xxs/xs.  The top was snug on the form but the skirt waistband did not close.  Form is 32"-24.5"-32"
