Original 1930s 30s Vintage Black Open Front Jacket With Geometric Detailing
This beautiful jacket was made from black rayon in the late 1930s. It is cut in an open fronted design, which is worn loosely. Lightly padded shoulders are emphasised by the collarless silhouette and gorgeous geometric panel work adds a fabulous yet elegant detail to this piece. The tops of the long sleeves are slightly gathered and inside, the jacket is unlined but features beautifully bound seams.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Length: 22 1/2”
The jacket is in very good condition with only a few areas of slight iron shine and a few nibbles 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
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.
