This stunning suit was made in the 1940s from a tan coloured lightweight wool tweed. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The notched lapel collar leads to a single row of five buttons that fastens the blazer at the front and wonderfully subtle diamond detailing adorns the bust and the pockets at the waist. Inside, the blazer is lined in yellow crepe and has a maker’s label for Davidow, a retailer’s label for Everitt-Buelow and a National Recovery Board tag. The matching skirt was cut in a gentle A line with a slit at the back and fastens with an original metal side zipper and hook closure above.

This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.

 

They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in pure white cotton.

 

They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.

 

We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
