Original 1940s 40s Vintage Petite Cream Linen Summer Skirt Suit With Origami Hip Detail By Sara Simon

Regular price £145.00 £0.00 Unit price per

This wonderful summer skirt suit was made from a light weight linen in the 1940s. As you would expect from a summer suit it features a less formal non padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The attractive origami folds at the waist create an eye catching detail and compliment the jacket’s padded peplum beautifully. The five dark brown buttons with central rosette decoration contrast wonderfully with the light colour of the fabric. Inside the jacket there is a maker’s label for Sara Simon California.

The summer suit is in very good condition.

 

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.
