Fabulous Original 1940s Vintage Blush Pink Cream Summer Suit By Betty Rose
This stunning suit was made in the 1940s from a lightweight wool in the 1940s. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The sharp notched lapel collar highlights the shoulder line and three mother of pearl buttons fasten the blazer at the front. Beautiful tailoring nips the jacket in at the waist and large patch pockets add a practical feature. Inside, the blazer is lined in satin and has the collectible maker’s label for Betty Rose Fashions. The matching skirt was cut in a gentle A line and fastens with an original metal side zipper and button closure above.

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.
