Fabulous Original Vintage 1940s 40s Burgundy Nubby Wool Suit By The Addis Co

Regular price £145.00 £0.00 Unit price per

This fabulous suit was made in the 1940s from a burgundy boucle wool. It is cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The sharp notched lapel collar leads to a single row of five buttons which fasten the jacket. Beautiful dart work highlights the top of the bodice and there are functional slit pockets at the waist. Inside, the jacket is unlined and has a maker’s label for The Addis Co. The matching skirt is cut in an A line for a little swish and fastens with an original metal side zipper and hook closure above.

Bust: 36”

Waist: 28”

Shoulders: 14 1/2” seam to seam 

 

Skirt

The suit is in fair condition with a number or repairs which blend almost inperceivablely into the textured fabric. There is also a faint mark to the jacket as well as a more noticeable one which is mostly covered by the placket 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

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.
