Fabulous Original Late 1940s 40s Fuchsia Pink Blazer With Double Collar

This stunning blazer was made from fuchsia pink wool gabardine in the late 1940s. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. Beautiful dart work tailors the jacket perfectly at the waist and highlights the unusual geometric detailing at the sides. The large double layered collar adds a real feature to the blazer and leads to four fabric covered buttons that fasten at the front. Raglan shoulders allow for a flexible fit and the bracelet length sleeves show off a nice pair of gloves. Inside, the blazer is lined in crepe and has a maker’s label for Suskana tailored by Mildai.

 

Bust: 34”

Waist: 26”

Length: 20”

 

The blazer is in very good condition with only a few marks and slight frays as pictured. We think it may have been shortened slightly but it was well executed.

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.
