Iconic 1950s 50s Vintage Lilli Ann Silk Shot Worsted Wool Peplum Suit

£345.00

This fabulous suit was made in the early 1950s from a silk shot worsted wool in a beautiful shade of pink with a hint of taupe. The fabric is absolutely divine, it has an iridescent shine to it that gives the suit an expensive glow. The suit is cut in the iconic Lilli Ann silhouette with padded shoulders and a super strong weighted peplum creating that classic hourglass shape. The sharp collar leads to a single row of nine fabric covered buttons, which fasten the blazer and the sleeves are finished with turn up cuffs. Inside, the suit is lined in coral pink crepe and has a maker’s label for Lilli Ann as well as the Fabrics of France tag. The matching skirt is half lined and fastens with an original metal side zipper and a button closure above. The tailoring of this piece is just immaculate, enhancing the wearer’s shape in all the right places.

Shipping Policy

We will always send your item by Royal Mail Recorded Delivery, Parcelforce or another similar courier so that we are able to track your package and confirm safe receipt.

Please always ensure that your address details are correct at the time of purchase as we will be unable to refund items sent to the wrong address. Please note that we will only dispatch an item once payment has been confirmed and never before, therefore certain types of payment such as echeques will incur a delay as we will wait for the funds to clear.

In the event that an item is returned to us through no fault of our own we will give you the opportunity to have the package resent, however you will be expected to bear any additional costs.

Please note that Royal Mail will not send items recorded to an international PO Box number and that if you ask us to send to such an address and your item gets lost, you are still liable for the cost of the item and its postage.

The purchaser will be expected to pay any local taxes and customs charges that may apply to an item and Black Sheep Antiques will always declare the item’s value as the original purchase price.

Refund Policy

Our business is in old and beautiful clothing, this is great because what we offer will often be rare and sometimes unique but this does mean that we will be unable to offer you replacements most of the time.

The description that we use to list a product will always be honest and we will try to describe and photograph any faults that may affect the enjoyment of the item. However we must stress that these are period vintage garments and as a result they will often show signs of general wear. In fact, it is often what makes these items so very unique.

As a result we do not offer refunds or returns unless items have been materially misdescribed. Please ensure that you check all measurements carefully and feel free to request additional measurements if required as we do not offer returns due to fit.
