Original Vintage 1940s 40s Emerald Green Gabardine Skirt Suit In A Princess Cut Original By Gilbert
This stunning suit was made from emerald green gabardine in the 1940s. It is cut in a classic 1940s silhouette with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The waist is emphasised with delicate gathering at the sides and back, creating a princess fit waist with a peplum below. The central panel at the front of the jacket remains flat to give a flattering shape. The jacket also features a notched lapel collar and large patch pockets. Inside, the jacket is lined in faille with the lining sewn to mirror the gathered waist and it has a maker’s label for Botany Brand Fabric Original by Gilbert. the jacket fastens with hooks and eyes at the waist, whilst the matching skirt has an original metal side zipper and hook closure above.
Shoulders: 16” seam to seam
Length: 32 1/4” plus 1 1/2” hem
The suit is in very good condition with only some very slight nibbles and marks as pictured. The pockets may originally have had matching buttons but this does not detract.
