Original Late 1940s 40s Vintage Minty Aqua Summer Suit By Glenhaven
This wonderful summer skirt suit was made in the late 1940s from a lightweight gabardine in a shade of aqua meets mint. The suit has padded shoulders with a slight nip to the waist to create that desirable 1940s silhouette. A shawl collar on a round neckline marks the start for a line of eight buttons which run down to the waist. There are also functional waist pockets with decorative side flaps and buttons. Inside, the jacket is unlined and there is a maker’s label for Glenhaven. The skirt is also unlined and fastens with a metal zipper and top button closure with decorative arrow stitching.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Length: 31” plus 1” hem
The suit is in fair condition with some discolouration to the sleeves, sides and underarm lining as well as some perspiration marks to the back of the collar as pictured.
