40s Fitted Jacket Vintage Womens Geometric Cut M/L VFG
This is a fabulously flattering vintage 1940s women's suit jacket! Shoulders are padded and silhouette is fitted with vertical darting creating the classic nipped in waist. The angled rectangle piecing for the bust is unusual and works beautifully. The jacket has exaggerated notched lapel and faux handwarmer pocket flaps. The turned up sleeve cuffs are notched - if you need a bit more length, you can remove the tacking and let them down.
SIZE: No size label
FABRIC/COLORS: Finely woven wool gabardine in a warm shade of light brown, darker and less yellow than camel tan. In my 96 Crayola crayon box, the crayon colors that come closest are Tumbleweed and Gold (minus the metallic). The lining is a peachy tan crepe.
TAGS: No tags.
CLOSURES: Three self fabric buttons with decorative stitching. Buttonholes are bound.
CONDITION: I found a single pinhole above the right faux pocket flap - see closeup. No other issues noted.
