Original 1940s 40s Vintage Navy Ultra Violet Gabardine Wrap Skirt Suit
This stunning suit was made in the 1940s from gabardine in a wonderful shade of dark navy meets ultraviolet. The padded shoulders and shape defining nipped waist help to give this garment the classic hourglass shape so typical of the 1940s. The collarless v-neckline is decorated with a double pleat which extends down to diamanté button at the left of the waist and exaggerates the wrap over style of the jacket. The same double pleat feature also adorns the openings of the functional slit waist pockets. The jacket also boasts a fabulous fold up wing cuff. Inside, the garment is lined in crepe with a maker’s label for Briefs of Brevity.
Shoulders: 14 3/4” seam to seam
Length: 27 1/2” plus 4”hem
The exterior of the suit is in very good condition, however there is some underarm wear and staining to the inside lining of the jacket as pictured.
