Rare 1940s Maternity Powersuit in Black Wool with Bold Fuchsia Corduroy Colorblock


  • Product Description

      I had never imagined myself jealous of maternity fashion until I found this suit. This 1940s maternity two piece is absolutely KILLER. A powerful suit that knows how and when to make a statement, it's made of a fairly lightweight wool crepe, paired with ribs of soft cotton chenille, almost like an incredibly wide wale corduroy in appearance. The shoulders are padded, and the long sleeves are cuffed. This was not made for the maternity of staying at home - this is office ready power apparel. The skirt is the standard vintage form of maternity skirt, with cutaway belly area and satin ties. The jacket is fully lined and has working pockets.

      Hips: 47"

      Waist: 25"-36"
      Hips: 41"

      Label: None Present, expertly homemade (bc goodness knows power suits weren't on the standard maternity menu)
      Material: Wool Crepe, Cotton Chenille
      Condition: Very Good minus

      This suit is clean and ready to wear. There was a single moth chew on the back waistline of the skirt, which has been darned a bit roughly. I'd consider it a more important flaw, perhaps, if the waist of the skirt could ever be seen, but it's not that kind of suit! I find no other issues to note!
