This darling jacket is from the early 1940s. The selvages on the inside facings have a red line, dating it to the early 40s. This amount of fabric would not have been used in a jacket after WW II started as fabric was rationed. Trims and extra belts were not considered patriotic.
The cotton fabric is a brown and white WOVEN stripe. It is not printed so there is a slight texture. It is a medium weight and in above excellent condition.
