Bold Post-War 1940s Homemade Tailored Jacket with Arrow Detail


  • Product Description

      I can never resist arrow details! This post war jacket is a bit of an usual find - I don't see many homemade sportcoats. It's made of a classic black and white checked fabric, and riffs off designer pieces of the time, with the arrow accent turned on the bias. The sleeves are bracelet length, and have self-fabric buttons. The jacket closes with self-fabric buttons and two hidden hook and eyes. It is lined with a silk rayon blend brocade.


      Shoulder: 14.75"
      Bust: 36"
      Waist: 30"
      Length: 23.5"
      Sleeve: 20.5"

      Label: None Present, homemade
      Material: Wool, Rayon blend lining 
      Condition: Good, as is

      This jacket is clean and ready to wear. There is a 1/2" repair to strained wool by the left armscye at front. The most notable issue is that maker apparently measured the lining incorrectly, and the back of the jacket fits with the lining a bit awkwardly, turning under slightly. It's very subtle when worn, but certainly not a mistake an experienced seamstress would make. There is a small area of staining at the right underarm, and one small moth chew at the back.
