Amazing Original 1940s 40s Vintage Pale Aqua Blue Summer Suit
This stunning suit was made from pale aqua coloured cotton in the 1940s. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The large collar leads to a single row of five fabric covered buttons which fasten the jacket. The jacket features a flattering V cut out, matching the notch in the back of the collar, and turn up cuffs finish off the sleeves. The real design detail on this piece are the unusual propeller shaped cut outs on watch side of the bust, like mini pockets! Inside, the blazer is lined in cream acetate and bears a National Recovery Board tag. The matching skirt is cut in a slight A line and fastens with an original metal side zipper and button closure above.
