Original 1940s Petite Pink Vintage Summer Skirt Suit By Lady Renlyn
This beautiful skirt suit was made in the 1940s from a shocking pink light weight linen. The jacket features a white rounded style cotton collar, five cream buttons, faux waist pockets and turn up cuffs. The skirt has a rear vent with an embroidered pink arrow at the top. The suit is unlined and has a makers label for Lady Renlyn.
Hips: 35 1/2”
Length: 26” plus 1 1/2” hem allowance
The suit is in good condition overall, however there is a small mark to the front of the jacket as pictured but it is light enough to not be immediately noticeable.
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
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.
