The 1914 Metropolitan Suit reflects the military styling of World War I uniforms, as well as the mid-1910s interest in comfortable and practical two-piece garments. This beautiful style is Folkwear's newest design.
The Jacket features a tall rollover collar with either a curved or pointed center back, gently pointed center back hem, softly flared silhouette, and turned-back cuffs. The front closes with ornamental frogs. Soutache or other ornamental braid in military design motifs create an accurate period look, but contemporary designs in ribbon or braid trim are attractive too.
The Skirt is slightly hobbled, with a raised waistline and a slit at center back for ease of walking. The Overskirt attaches to the skirt at the top edge and drapes attractively at the back hem. The front folds of the Overskirt can be decoratively topstitched to the Skirt form the waist edge down to the hip area, if desired. If worn without the Jacket, the Skirt can be further embellished with buttons down the front folds of the Overskirt, or with suspenders crossed in the back, or with belt loops and belt at the natural waistline.
Wear the Skirt with #270 Metro Middy Blouse (tucked in or not) for a breezy casual look. Top off the suit with #269 Metropolitan Hat for a complete and classy ensemble.
