This incredible summer suit was made from a sky blue linen mix in the 1950s. The colour is just so fabulously bright and summery. It features embroidered arrow decoration to the chest pocket of the jacket and also the hip pocket of the skirt. The jacket has padded shoulders, a notched lapel collar as well as three large patch pockets and closes with three buttons at the front. It retains its original maker’s label for Koret of California and is handily hand washable.

Jacket

Bust: 39”
Waist: 34”

Skirt

Waist: 25” (button can be moved to accommodate tight 26”)
Hips: 38”
Length: 29 1/2 + 1”

The suit is in good condition, however there are a number of small marks as pictured as well as some very light marks around the skirt pocket (only visible in a certain light).

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.
