  • Product Description

      FabGabs is delighted bring you quality reproduction pieces by Northwest clothing line, Jitterbuggin'. This well-made brand is no longer active, and we have been lucky enough to consign their deadstock. That means that while there's multiple sizes and colors of many pieces, the quantity is limited - just like vintage, there will never be more. 

      This piece is one of four colors made of the Hawthorne Pinafore. It's all cottton, made within the US, and is a piece I've owned and worn myself (I have one in every color that I bought from her first run.) Those pockets are just big enough for a smaller cell phone or to pop credit cards or cash into when you don't want to carry a purse. They close on the side with a nylon zipper. 

      The Aviation Blue is a favorite in my closet, most frequently paired with dark colors and very full sleeves. It plays nicely with pastels, too. 

      The Burgundy is a shade that is so rich and wonderfully autumn - this quite a dark burgundy, so it is fantastic with bright oranges, chartreuse, mustard - but in my own collection, I wear a black blouse and dark lipstick with it frequently.

      Shamrock Green - I mean, do I need to say anything about this shade? An "It" color of the 40s, and the "It" color for 30s and 40s collectors today, this is saturated and rich. 

      The sizing ended up not entirely accurate after manufacturing, so I am completely ignoring their tagged sizes, and breaking them into number sizes here, with specific measurements. These will also shrink some, so if the sizing is good, wash in cold and hang to dry. If you need it a bit snugger, a warm water wash and tumble dry will do the trick. 

      These are close-outs, there are no returns for fit.

      I apologize in advance that larger sizes have such limited quantities. Most were sold before the brand retired. I cannot have any further pieces made.

      These items are deadstock and unworn, with the exception of the size 6 samples modeled in the lookbook. All will arrive clean and folded in a protective envelope and standard FabGabs packing.
