Cute Original Early 1950s 50s Black Wool Blazer By Nobility Jrs
This stunning blazer was made in the early 1950s from a fine textured black wool. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist waist. Below the waist the hem peplums out slightly and there are tiny hidden functional slit pockets. The small rounded collar and three quarter length sleeves with turn up cuffs finish off the blazer. But the real statement piece on this design are the fastenings. Three fabric covered buttons are disguised behind semicircular cut outs which feature a central tab adorned with a half ball diamanté covered button. It’s a real statement piece! Inside, the blazer is lined in black crepe and has a maker’s label for Nobility Jnr.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
The blazer is in very good condition with only some very faint underarm discolouration to the lining. There is also a mark and a fray to the lining 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
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.
