This stunning summer suit was made from a navy blue rayon with a light blue and white square pattern in the late 1940s. The v-neckline is framed with a wing collar and marks the beginning of five fabric covered buttons with diamanté centres. Similar buttons are used to adorn the decorative tabs at the sides of the waistline. The pretty scalloped hem and volume creating dolmans sleeve add an additional level of interest to this garment.

Jacket

Bust: 38” +/-2” due to dolman sleeves
Waist: 26”

Skirt

Waist: 26”
Hips: 40”
Length: 26 1/2” plus 1 1/2” hem

The garment is in good condition, however it has a small hole on the shoulder and one on the skirt as well as some soiling to the inside of the collar and a seam split 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.
