This piece was made in the 1940's from medium weight wool in a pretty shade of raspberry pink.
A classic shape of the era with broad shoulders, a swing back, patch pockets and neat lapels. It is fully lined and has button trim detail on the pockets.
A wonderful piece in a gorgeous colour.
The jacket isn't meant to be close fitting and is meant to have some movement and fullness to the piece so will best fit up to a 40" bust. However, to ensure that this will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 23" in the back and 26" in the front
Shoulders between sleeves 15.5"
Underarm sleeve length 17"
Good with some minor points to note;
- there are some splits on the lining, especially on the underarms and sleeve ends
- mild perfume smell
- a cluster of small spots on the right collar - see photo
