Amazing Original 1940s 40s Vintage Pale Aqua Blue Summer Suit

This stunning suit was made in the 1940s from a pale aqua meets robins egg coloured cotton. 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.

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 two different options:

 

1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits

or

2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)

 

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.
