Original Vintage 1930s 30s Black Silk Velvet Jacket With Shirred Ruffle Collar And Puff Shoulders
This beautiful jacket was made in a delicate black silk velvet in the 1930s. The classic cut of this garment really shows off the luxurious fabric, which has been shirred at the collar to give a ruffle textured effect. The puff shoulders lead effortlessly into flattering long sleeve. The jacket is open fronted with decorative adorning each side of the waist. Inside, the jacket is lined in black and gold silk.
Shoulders: 14” seam to seam
The jacket is in very good condition throughout with no issues to note.
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.
