1940s Wasp Waist Jacket Exquisite Details Measurements in inches: Bust 36, waist 28, across the bottom of the peplum 40, upper back 16-1/2, sleeve 23-1/2,
shoulder to hem 22-1/2. Vivid, deep, royal purple, lightweight wool with rayon crepe lining and carnival glass buttons. This is a beauty!
Circa 1946; a great example of Women's Fashion post WW II.
Gorgeous detail work; stitch work along the collar edge and peplum is so unique. Finish details: tailored button holes and slashed, flared cuffs. Triple waist darts in front and three long gores in the back achieve the perfect "wasp waist". The buttons are to die for! They are black glass with a carnival finish.
Label: Carroll's. This was a small and very exclusive boutique located in Boise Idaho in the 1940s-1970s. Long gone but that label was VERY sought after. Known for high end designer clothes and the most amazing costume jewelry. Many of the clothing items used just the Carroll's label.
This piece is in excellent vintage condition. No stains or odors. The color is DEEP purple. The last picture is lightened to show a teeny, tiny, pin hole. It is on the back shoulder of the right sleeve. I have framed it with a pin so you could see it better. Very small, but it is there. The inside shoulder seam linings are slightly opened. They are just basted shut. I think this was done to remove shoulder pads. I am leaving the seams as they are, in case you want to add shoulder pads back.
Wonderful example of women's fashion post WWII.
