Vintage Camel Gabardine Suit with Peplum, ca 1940s

$115.00 USD



  • Gabardine
  • Crepe
This suit is in very good vintage condition: there are a few snags in the fabric and spots on both the jacket and the skirt, although none of these is easily discernible. The jacket is lined in camel crepe. There is a shoulder pad on either side.

Please be sure to note the notched 3" collar and the iconic peplum and pinched waist; note, too, the 5" side slit pocket at each hip - this pocket with its stunning 3-button detail flanks a faux pocket.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 14"
arm pit to arm pit: 16"
waist: 26"
hips: 30"
back length: 25"
sleeve length: 23"
waist: 24"
hips: 34"
skirt length: 31"
side metal zipper: 6"

You are sure to make a grand entrance wearing this suit...what a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection. This is a fine example of wearable late 1940s textile art.
