Incredible Rare Original Mustard Plaid Belted 1940s 40s Vintage Suit With Arrow Tabs And Bustle Back

This stunning suit was made in the 1940s from soft wool with a beautiful plaid pattern in mustard and grey on a cream coloured background. The blazer has been cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist which is further chinches in by the matching original fabric covered belt. When worn without the belt, the jacket has an amazing swing silhouette that falls into stunning pleats at the back. The sharp collar leads to a row of four metal buttons which fasten the jacket and matching buttons have been used to adorn the arrow shaped pocket tabs at the hip. The sleeves are wide and fluted with huge turn up cuffs. The back of the blazer shows off the incredible quality of tailoring on this piece through the use of panel work and darting, which creates a stunning bustle back design below the belted waist. The inside of the blazer is lined in crepe and remarkably has only a National Recovery Board tag but no maker’s labels. The matching skirt features a kick pleat at both the front and the back and fastens with an original metal side zipper and hook 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 two different options:

 

1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight

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.
