Original 1940s 40s Vintage Green Check Peplum Summer Suit By Pat Hartly
This amazing suit was made in the 1940s from a green and black wool with a houndstooth pattern. The suit is cut in a classic 1940s hourglass silhouette with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The waist is further highlighted with the large pleated peplum at the front and back of the jacket. The sharp dagger collar leads to a concealed hook fastenings at the waist and the three quarter length sleeves are beautifully cuffed for added volume. A huge vent at the back further emphasises the shape of the blazer. Inside, the jacket is unlined in classic summer suit style and has a maker’s label for Pat Hartly. The matching skirt is cut to a longer length, has amazing concealed pockets and fastens with an original metal side zipper and hook closure above.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Length: 29” plus 1 1/2” hem
The suit is in very good condition with only a small pinhole and some slight fading to the shoulders and sleeves as pictured. This is much less noticeable in real life compared to the pictures taken under strong photography lighting.
