This stunning suit was made in the late 1930s from lightweight floppy brown cotton. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with gently gathered shoulders and a nipped waist. The collarless silhouette highlights the strong shoulder line and gorgeous green embroidery work adorns the left bust. A single button fastens the blazer at the waist and it is unlined inside. The matching skirt was cut in a gentle A line and fastens with four buttons at the side.

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.
