This beautiful suit was made from kelly green wool gabardine in the late 1940s. It was cut in the classic new look silhouette with a flared A line sort and a cropped open fronted jacket. The small collar adds a lovely detail and the high waisted skirt defines the wearer’s shape. The jacket is lined in sumptuous green satin but does not have any maker’s labels. The skirt fastens with an original metal side zipper and button closure above. 

Jacket

Bust: 34”

Waist: 30”

Shoulders: 14” seam to seam

 

Skirt

Waist: 24”

Hips: 39”

Length: 31 1/2” plus 2” hem 

 

The suit is in good condition, however there are a few marks and grazes as well as some fading to the right sleeve. This is less noticeable in natural light than it is under studio lighting. There is also some discolouration to the lining 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.
