Gorgeous Original Vintage 1940s 40s Navy Blue Spring Weight Blazer By Ricemor
This fabulous blazer was made from navy blue gabardine in the late 1940s. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The small rounded collar features a cute bow peeking out from underneath. The blazer fastens with four gorgeous buttons at the front. Functional pockets at the waist add a practical feature and the turn up cuffs finish off the sleeves beautifully. Inside, the jacket is lined in blue crepe and has a maker’s label for Ricemor.
Shoulders: 14 3/4” seam to seam
The blazer is in very good condition with only some slight sheen to the shoulders as pictured. There is also some faint discolouration to the lining but this is not visible when worn.
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.
