40s Green Gabardine Bolero Suit

The most incredible 1940s Bolero suit

Fabricated in a vibrant green wool Gabardine, closest to Pantone’s Peppermint

Bolero Jacket features wide Lapels hand tacked to body at points

Voluminous Full length sleeves fasten at cuffs with plastic buttons

Decorative plastic buttons on front panels. The snaps are likely not original and are easily removed if prefered

*** The buttons on the sleeve cuffs and front are different, but work well together.

Jacket is fitted in the front with a bust dart from the side seam and another from the shoulder.

***This had been altered/taken in at the shoulder at some point as there is a small pleat neatly stitched at the armhole front to back. It could be let out, but will likely leave a stitchline.

Interior facings and hem finished with bias tape and grosgrain.

8 panel Flare skirt with a 1 1/8” waistband

Fastens with a metal Talon zipper at the side seam and hooks and eyes on the waistband.

Very shallow 3/4” blind hem, clean finished with a hem tape.

***There are signs that the skirt has been taken in. There is seam allowance to let it out if needed. (up to 1 3/4” in the waist)

Interior seams are pinked

Maker: Unknown

Condition: Very Good. There have been minor alterations to the jacket and skirt (please see item description.) There is a small brown spot at the bottom edge of the front lapel and a second on the back right sleeve that did not lift in the cleaning. Very mild fade here and there as well as shine from over pressing. I have pointed this out on the sleeve and skirt seam. See photos. This has been dry cleaned and arrives clean and ready to wear.

Measurements: ***The measurements below are the actual measurements of the garment. Please allow for ease. Whenever possible the best way to insure a good fit is by comparing the measurements to that of a similar garment in your closet.
