Original Late 1940s 40s Vintage Sky Blue Linen Summer Skirt Suit By Sacony
This wonderful skirt suit was made from a sky blue linen in the 1940s. The padded shoulders and shape defining nipped waist give this garment a beautiful hourglass silhouette. The v-neckline is framed with an unusual notched collar and marks the beginning of a line of four fabric covered buttons. There are functional pockets with decorative flaps at the waist, whilst the inside of the jacket has a label for Sacony Palm Beach.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Length: 28” plus 3 1/2” hem
The suit is in fair condition, it has a small hole to the skirt, which is also slightly faded when compared with the jacket. There is also a really faint stain to the lapel of the jacket but it is barely 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.
