Vintage 1940s Jacket / Soutache Embroidery
Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.
The charts on this page are here to assist you in understanding how vintage clothing and kimonos are measured and where you should measure on your body.
Gorgeous vintage 1940s blazer. Natural ecru linen covered in soutache embroidery. Lovely wide pointed collar, asymmetrical front and gorgeous mother of pearl buttons with brass leaves. Fully lined in matching rayon crepe. It is in very good condition. There is scattered faint discoloration but is so light it almost looks like an intentional part of the fabric. There are a few small pieces of loose embroidery, see last photo for details.
