LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 4 - RESERVED FOR SARA - Stunning Original 1940s Vintage Deep Burgundy Red Asymmetrical Blazer By Donnybrook
RESERVED FOR SARA - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 4 due 8th July 2023
This amazing blazer was made in the 1940s from gabardine in a rich dark red hue. It was cut in the classic sharp hourglass silhouette of the period with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The shawl collar emphasises the unusual asymmetrical design of the jacket and three brass buttons fasten it at the front. Decorative mock pocket flaps add a wonderful design detail and highlight the beautiful tailoring of this piece. Inside, the blazer is lined in burgundy crepe and has a maker’s label for Donnybrook and a National Recovery Board tag.
Shoulders: 16” seam to seam
Length: 26 3/4”
The blazer is in very good condition with only some wear 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 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.
