This wonderful suit was made in the 1940s from deep navy blue wool gabardine. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The sharp dagger collar leads to a single row of five beautiful fabric covered buttons that fasten the blazer. Wonderful notched and top stitched pocket detailing draws the attention to the hip with smaller versions accentuating the bust of the jacket. The hem of the blazer flares out below the cinched waist to create that iconic 1940s silhouette. Inside, the jacket is lined in navy crease and has a maker’s label for Charm of Miami. The matching skirt was cut in a gentle A line, fastens with an original metal side zipper and button closure above and also has a Charm of Miami label.

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.
