LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 4 - RESERVED FOR SARA - Super Cute Original 1940s 40s Vintage Navy Blue Crepe Suit With Bow Detail
RESERVED FOR SARA ON LAYAWAY - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 4 - due 25th April 2022
This gorgeous suit was made from navy blue crepe in the 1940s. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The collarless design further emphasises the strong shoulder line and five fabric covered buttons surrounded by a bib shaped yolk fasten the blazer at the front. A large fabric bow decorates the waist and from there a cut out peplum falls beautifully across the wearers hips. Inside, the blazer is unlined with a maker’s label for Nan Forman Fashion. The matching skirt was cut in a soft A line and fastens with concealed buttons and a hook at the side.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Length: 25 1/2”
The suit is in very good condition with only some slight underarm discolouration on the inside, which is not visible when worn.
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.
