Lilli Ann Tweed Suit

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Lilli Ann of San Francisco was well known for their glamourous suits. These garments were elaborately tailored, yet feminine and sexy , all at the same time. This figure flattering suit is a perfect example.

The fitted jacket has a generous shawl collar trimmed in a wide band of black velvet. It closes just above the fitted waist with four fabric covered buttons. The jacket has a wonderful peplum accenting the narrow waistline. It is fully lined in balck.

The skirt is cut straight with a narrow waistband, a left side zipper and a center back kick pleat. The fabric is an unusual black and grey tweed with accents of white and turquoise blue. The suit is in excellent condition.
