This fabulous blazer was made from black taffeta in the late 1940s. It was cut in the hourglass silhouette of the period with lightly padded shoulders and a nipped waist. A flattering peplum emphasises the fitted waust and skims the wearer’s hips. The large super sharp collar leads to a single row of eight velvet covered buttons which fasten the jacket. Matching velvet, alongside soutache embroidery, has also been used to accentuate the floral and foliage motif that runs across the bust and shoulders. Turn up cuffs finish off the three quarter length sleeves beautifully and blazer has a strong femme fatale aesthetic. Inside, it is unlined, in line with its summer weight, and has a maker’s label for California Modes of Los Angeles.

 

Bust: 40”

Waist: 30”

Length: 23 1/2”

 

The blazer is in very good condition with only some loose stitching inside the sleeve cuff as pictured.

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.
