NIPPED WAIST 1940's JACKET 1950's black wool xs (E5)
This comes to me from a 98-year-old consignor who made it in the late 1940's. It's a wool twill, lined in black satin. Brushed silver tone buttons. SERIOUS shoulder pads. :) Picture 10 shows the backside of the buttons... they are special safety pins designed for buttons, and she said this was so she could switch out the buttons for a different look, so it looked like she was wearing a different jacket. She said she had a sparkly set of buttons if she wanted to wear this for evening, and another set of buttons was flower-shaped. This silver tone metal button set is the only set included with the jacket, as she no longer has the other buttons. This looks like there are side slash pockets, but they are just decorative, no real pockets. Fits like an XS, please compare the measurements below with a jacket you have at home that fits well. Excellent condition... the pictures that look faded or 'greenish' are just because I had to lighten the pics to better show detail. This is pure black. ACTUAL GARMENT MEASUREMENTS (no stretch, leave room to layer if necessary) Shoulders: 15" seam to seam across the top back, but the shoulder pads make them extend a bit more Sleeves: 23.5" Bust: 32" Waist: 26" Length: 22.5" Check out my other listings, I love to combine shipping!
