Unusual 1940s 40s Original Vintage Mint Green Suit By Printzess
This fabulous suit was made in the 1940s from gabardine in a super unusual shade of mint meets seafoam. It was cut in a strong 1940s silhouette with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The notched collar has lapels running down to the three buttons fastening the blazer at the waist. Matching smaller buttons decorate the triangular flaps of the small functional waist pockets and a small slit pocket detail on each side adds a nice feature to the bust. Inside, the blazer is lined in pink crepe and has a maker’s label for Printzess, who are well known for their string tailored pieces. The matching skirt was cut in a slight A line and fastens with an original metal side zipper and button closure above.
Shoulders: 15 3/4” seam to seam
Waist: 28” plus 3” to move button
Hips: 42” (4” seam allowance)
Length: 30” plus 2 1/2” hem
The suit is in fair condition with a number of surface nibbles, pin holes, darns and small marks as pictured. There is also an area of staining to the back of the skirt which is covered by the jacket when worn and some staining at the inside of the collar.
