Beautiful Original 1940s Vintage Grey And Cream Check Peplum Suit Blazer
This gorgeous jacket was made in the 1940s from lightweight wool in a wonderful grey and cream plaid pattern. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The small shawl collar leads to a single row of two mother of pearl buttons that fasten the blazer. From the waist seam a small peplum flares out to give additional shape to the piece and solid grey accent panels highlight the pockets. Inside, the blazer is unlined and has a small cardboard stock label still attached.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
The jacket is in very good condition with only a couple of small marks and repairs as pictured, which blend well with the busy pattern.
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
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.
