Original 1930s 30s Vintage Light Blue Silk Taffeta Belted Jacket With Puff Sleeves

This stunning jacket was made from a textured silk taffeta in the 1930s. As you would expect from a garment of this decade, it features incredible puff shoulders. The hourglass silhouette is achieved using an integrated yet adjustable clip belt which nicely nips in the wearer’s waist. At the back of the jacket, the belt is embellished with an eye catching bow. The plunging v-neckline is framed with a notched lapel collar. The jacket closes with four petite mother of pearl buttons below the waist and the sleeve cuffs have been highlighted with A contrasting teal trim.


Shoulders: 14” Seam To Seam
Bust: 40”
Waist: 38” but the belt will go to a maximum of 32” (ideally smaller)
Length: 22 1/2”

 

The garment is in very good condition throughout, however some of the stitching used to tack down the rear belt has come loose 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.
