This stunning suit was made from grey wool between the late 1940s and the early 1950s. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with lightly padded shoulders and a gently nipped waist. The notched lapel collar leads to a single row of five floral buttons that fasten the blazer. Notched in the hem add a lovely detail and at the sides of the waist the beginnings of the back belt are just visible. On the rear this belt back emphasises the waist and has been decorated with a matching button. The blazer hem flares out gently below the back belt and gives a peplum effect. Inside, the jacket is lined in silk and has a maker’s label for A Phillip Tournage Design by Marquise, a retailer’s label for J.W. Robinson Co and a Chiffon Worsted Flannel fabric tag. The matching skirt is straight cut 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.
