Rare Original 1940s Vintage Chartreuse Green Faille Blazer By Rothmoor
This exquisite blazer was made in the 1940z from chartreuse green rayon faille. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The unusual notched collar adds a wonderful design element and leads to a single row of child coloured buttons that fasten the jacket. Turn up cuffs finish off the sleeves beautiful and strategically placed slit pockets give further shape to the padded hem that emphasises the iconic shape of the piece. Inside, the blazer is unlined and has a maker’s label for Rothmoor.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Length: 23 1/3”
The blazer is in very good condition with only a few very minor flaws and some stitch marks were the seams were let out and the buttons moved at some point.
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 pure white cotton.
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.
