New Zealand...Back In Fashion

Love this! NZ knit wear from the 1940's...

" Portrait of an unidentified woman, modelling for New Zealand Knitted Wear, wearing a dark coloured suit with light coloured lapels and trim on the jacket pockets, two large buttons at the waist, a light coloured blouse with pin tucking and dark coloured buttons on the bodice, a dark coloured bow at the neck, a dark coloured skirt, a small dark coloured hat, holding a pair of gloves and a handbag.

The pockets look like they could be lips. What a fantastic coat!
