Here's a lovely 1950s suit pattern from Anne Adams - a straight skirt is paired with a tailored jacket that has a wonderful button detail on the peplum at the back. The curve of the buttoned tab is echoed on the rounded corners at the front edges of the jacket, too - very smart, very stylish!
(This is one of those mail order patterns that's really vexing to date: no date on the postmark, a postage rate and meter number that don't narrow things down much either... late enough to be a printed pattern, but from the peplum and the hairstyle, i'd guess earlier rather than later in the decade.)
It's a half-size pattern, designed for folks with a shorter build.
Bust 39" Waist 33" Hip 43"
It's complete, and partially cut (only the collar, skirt back, waistband, and jacket front have been cut - now, there's a baffling assortment for you!) and the mailing envelope is present. One pattern piece (the collar) has been cut a little jaggedly, about 3/4" along each point, in the seam allowance. The envelope shows edge wear and tiny tears along the flap, but has the newspaper clipping of the design pasted to the front for easy reference.
