LAYAWAY PAYMENT 1 OF 2 - RESERVED FOR NICOLA - Stunning Original 1940s Volup Vintage Red Lightweight Summer Blazer With Geometric Button
RESERVED FOR NICOLA - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 1 OF 2 due 19th May 2023
This wonderful blazer was made from red cotton in the 1940s. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist that fastens with a single geometric button. The collarless neckline further emphasises the strong shoulders and beautiful seam detailing shapes the garment. The short cuffed sleeves give the piece a casual vibe and large pockets add the waist add a practical feature. Inside the jacket is unlined as you would expect of a summer weight piece.
Shoulders: 16” seam to seam
The blazer is in good condition with only some minor flaws as pictured. The inside seams have been subsequently reinforced with overlocking to strengthen them.
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
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.
