Circa 1950s Jernat Pale Pink Wool Sweater/Skirt Set - "Zip-off" Hem!!
Knitwear and full skirts are in this fall! Get both with this shell pink sweater and skirt set knit with wool. The sweater has short sleeves and a leaf-patterned neckline decorated in silver and pink cord with rhinestone accents for a bit of sparkle. Little silver floral buttons with rhinestone centers add charm. The long pleated skirt has an elastic waist and a very unique feature - a "zip-off" hemline to adjust the length! The two hem segments are separated with decorative stitching. To shorten, simply cut the threads and the segment falls away! Very cool! Either not worn or the previous owner never shortened the skirt. The label reads Zip off Hem by Jernat, and gives a patent number. It also reads 100% Wool. Measurements are approximate: Bust - 36-38" The elastic waist measures 28" without stretch, and the hips measure 38" but keep in mind that's flat so it should adjust to you due to the pleating. The length of the skirt can be 29", 30" or 31" depending on where you cut the threads for the finished hem. Excellent condition. I'd call this a modern-sized 8/10 but I can see a size 12 working too. Or a busty size 6.
