Vintage Suit, Camel with Black Polka Dots, Miss Emily's, Patterson, NJ, ca 1940s

$140.00 USD


This pretty suit is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than a small white spot on the left side of the black velvet collar, as magnified in the last photo.

Please be sure to note the iconic, flattering peplum of the jacket and the striking black velvet trim of the cuffs and collar; note, too, the notched collar and the softly pleated back of the jacket. The shoulders are softly padded and there is rounded 5" long pocket at the hip on each side. The fabric could best be described as a pique or cotton waffle knit.

Approximate measurements:
jacket -
shoulder to shoulder: 15"
arm pit to arm pit: 18"
3/4 sleeve length: 18 1/2"
back length: 28"
skirt -
waist (flat): 15"
hips (flat): 20"
length: 30"
(back) metal zipper length: 6"

This would make a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection and is a fine example of wearable 1940s textile art.
