This beautifully tailored 1940's fawn jacket, with detailed matching covered buttons and caramel stitching details, is the perfect piece to add to your everyday wardrobe.
The V shaped neckline is framed by a pointed collar edged with a border of caramel coloured running stitches. The strong shoulder line of the jacket, is accented by internally sewn shoulder pads, which set off the full length sleeves which are edged with turned up cuffs. The fitted cut, is accented by Princess seams, which frame the stylised triple horizontal panels, that create the illusion of a military style double breasted cut, finished with triple button features, of which the central buttons are the main fastenings. The cinched in waistline, sets off the rounded pockets along the hemline, which are edged with caramel running stitches, to match those along the collar. This jacket is fully lined in silk.
