What a great suit! So feminine and lovely! It features a beautifully tailored jacket, with  3/4 length sleeves, a tiny waist and a wonderful attached scarf. It probably dates from the early 1950's.
The suit was sold at John Bishop Doyle, a department store opened in 1950 in Seattle by Mr. Doyle. He was a well known local who was so popular with his customers that over 70% bought exclusively from his store. By 1980 his store had closed.
