This incredible suit was made in the late 1940s from copper coloured satin. It was cut in the classic new look silhouette of the period with a flared skirt and a beautifully tailored jacket. The small collar creates a high neckline and highlights the strong padded shoulders. Six beautiful fabric covered buttons fasten the jacket in a double breasted configuration. The blazer was designed to emphasise the wearer’s waist through its cropped length and rounded off hem. Inside, the jacket is unlined and has a maker’s label for Marshall Field & Company. The matching skirt was cut in a wide flared silhouette, typical of the late 1940s new look, with a nipped waist and wonderful swish. It comes in a flattering longer length and fastens with an original metal side zipper and button above. 


Jacket

Bust: 34”

Waist: 28” high waist 

Shoulders: 14 1/2” seam to seam

Length: 16”

 

Skirt

Waist: 26” (24” with waist extender removed)

Hips: free

Length: 32” plus 3” hem

 

The suit is in very good condition with only a few tiny flaws as pictured which are not very noticeable due to the iridescence of the fabric. A piece of fabric has been inserted to extend the skirt waist by 2” but this could easily be removed to restore the original sizing.

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.
