Vintage late 1940s into early 1950s wool gabardine maternity jacket features a grey-striped navy-and-cream tattersall plaid boldly accented by four square, navy fabric-covered buttons.

Its swingy shape, designed to accommodate a changing figure with stylish ease, includes construction details such as its partial front closure; a convertible collar with pointed lapels; gently puffed shoulders above full, cuffed sleeves; side slits at the hip; and an inverted pleat in back.

Two generously sized patch pockets with decorative flaps add a final dollop of user-friendly dash, and thread belt loops are present, to cinch the jacket for post-pregnancy use.

Lined in navy rayon crepe, the jacket has no labels of any kind, as it came from the estate of a local seamstress.

It would likely have been paired with a solid skirt; photo #8 shows period ads for maternity suits, which were typically of a washable fabric like cotton, corduroy, or rayon. The fine wool fabric the seamstress chose for this example makes it ideal for use in a suit or as outerwear.

Measurements are bust 40”, shoulders 15”, waist 42”, sleeves 24”, and length shoulder to hem 25.5”.

This maternity jacket in an iconic post-war shape is in excellent. little to never-used condition.
