Original Late 1940s / Early 1950s Gold Yellow Wool Vintage Skirt Suit Cropped Jacket
This stunning golden yellow suit was made in the late 1940s / early 1950s from wool. The jacket has been made in a cropped style and is designed to be worn open. It also boasts a notched collar and has been lined in silk. The skirt has a metal side zipper and rear vent.
Length: 26” plus 2” hem
The suit is in good condition, it does have tiny nibble to the skirt and split seam to the lining of the bottom of the jacket.
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.
