1930s White Linen Suit Magg, London
Terrific white linen herringbone Summer suit with beaucoup style. The fitted jacket has a sort of feminine Norfolk jacket style in its flattering design. Self belt. Deeply pleated sportswear style skirt. Both are unlined. From Magg of Bond Street London, a small boutique offering custom clothing to the yachting set before the war. The original customer who purchased this was a ballerina of the Paris Opera and was the Duchess of Leeds for a time. Excellent condition, slight difference in whites between the skirt and the jacket shouldn't be difficult to remedy. No other flaws. Bust 34-36" Waist 24" Hips 34" Skirt length 25" The skirt could be altered a couple inches by a skilled tailor in both the waist and hips.
