Vintage late 1940s Aldens two piece dress or suit in black-velvet trimmed ivory faille pairs a chic little peplum jacket with a long, flaring skirt.

The nip-waisted jacket is fitted and shaped through a combination of double bust darts in front, princess seams in back, and ¾ length kimono sleeves that closely follow the curve of the lightly-padded shoulders.

The small, round collar and turn-back cuffs are piped in black velvet, and a pair of striking triple-loop-with-bow black velvet accents sit on either side at the waist in front. The jacket closes with 5 self-fabric buttons, with a snap at the very top to help the collar lie smoothly.

Made in two bias cut pieces, the flared, sweeping skirt closes with a side metal zipper and button. Both the jacket and the skirt are unlined, with pinked seams and ribbon-binding at the hem.

Label reads “Aldens, The Junior Shop”; tagged size is a vintage 16. Aldens, which grew out of a Chicago-based mail order company established in the 1880s, expanded into retail locations in the Midwest starting in the mid-1940s.

Measurement are as follows:

Jacket bust 34”, shoulders (approx.) 14”, sleeves 18”, waist 26”, and length center back to hem 20”.

Skirt waist 26”, hips 42”, and length 31”.

Very good condition, crisp and bright, with two thin 1” dark lines near the left front hem, and 2 faint smudges (one ½” and one ¼”) halfway down the right sleeve front (photo #6). None of these marks are conspicuous, especially given the fullness of the skirt.
