    It is a very sturdy fabric that brings to mind uniforms or some sort of utility. If the hem appears to be at the original length I can imagine this dating from the late 50s to early 60s, OR the mid 1940s. Not much help from me, sorry!

    I think early corporate wear, early 70s.

  5. It would help to see the seam width, how the seams and hem have been sewn, the zipper pull too.

    But on the available information, Maggie is right: could be mid '40s, could be '50s or '60s. These classic styles were used in a number of eras so that's why construction details can make all the difference.

    Thank you for your advice. I have taken some additional photos. It looks like partially hand sewn . Ive seen it in some vintage pieces but as Im new I m still not sure what it means :)

  7. Thanks for the additional pics. I don't recognise the zipper brand but by the construction and minimal seam allowance, I think this piece is likely to be '60s rather than earlier.
