Costume Details

After the war in 1947 the now well known designer Christian Dior created a new style known as the New Look. This amazing style saw ballerina length skirts full of fabric, nipped in waists, narrow shoulders and wide peplum style hems to the jackets. A complete contrast to the austerity style clothing of the war years. This revolutionary style caused all sorts of problems especially in Britain where rationing and clothing coupons were still in force. This lovely original 1940s suit is from around 1948 and is a rare example of the style. It has a fitted jacket with a peplum hem, the skirt is not as full as a Dior New Look skirt because of the lack of fabric but still has a similar style. The suit is completed with a mink fur tippet that rests over the collar, this can be removed. The suit will fit a dress size 8, bust 32” and waist 24”.

The Outfit – consists of original 1940s suit, original blouse, hat, mink fur tippet, handbag and gloves.

The Suit – is a lovely deep cerise wool, fitted into the waist with a peplum hem on the jacket and a full skirt. There is a mink tippet resting on the collar of the jacket.

The Blouse – is an original 1940s white cotton blouse with a lace rounded collar detail.

The Hat –is a lovely velvet and satin matching hat with net detail.

The Gloves – are vintage gloves that match the colour of the fur tippet.

The Bag – is a vintage handbag in lovely suede with a metal clasp.

The Fabric –The suit is wool. The blouse is cotton. The fur tippet is a mink. The hat is velvet and satin with net. The gloves are stretch fabric, and the handbag is suede.
