RESERVED FOR ANNA LAURA Amazing Original 1940s Vintage Pink Skirt Suit With Trapunto Details
RESERVED FOR ANNA LAURA - Shipping location and cost to be confirmed and charged separately
This stunning suit was made in the 1940s from pink wool crepe. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The collarless neckline and triple pleats in the shoulders really highlight the strong structure and tailoring of the suit. Beautiful trapunto quilting accentuates the back of the collar and bodice and runs along both sides of the placket before curving into small functional pockets. A single button fastens the jacket at the waist and inside, it is lined in red satin and bears a National Recovery Board tag. The matching skirt was cut in a gentle A line and fastens with an original metal side zipper and button closure above.
Shoulders: 15 1/2” seam to seam
Waist: 25” (tight 26”)
Length: 26 3/4”
The suit is in good condition, however there are a few marks and areas of slight discolouration as pictured as well as some splits to the lining.
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.
