Original 1940s 40s Vintage Navy Blue Suit With Cropped Jacket And Peplum Skirt

Regular price £165.00 £0.00 Unit price per

This stunning suit was made from a deep navy blue wool in the 1940s. It is cut in a cropped style with a shorter bolero length jacket with super strong padded shoulders. The jacket is collarless to further emphasise the strong shoulder line and has a lovely faux bust picket detail. Inside, the jacket is lined in rayon and without maker’s labels. The matching skirt features an incredible layered peplum detail at the front and closes with a metal side zipper and hook and press stud fastening above.

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.
