A beautiful jacket by Laurie White Couture dating from late 1940s (jacket structure inspired by New Look but still the roomy cut underarm/chest so unlikely later than early 1950s).
The yoke design in really love round the shoulders and back in Silk Faille Grosgrain/taffeta, with asymmetric tie at the front.
Glass jet buttons.
I have worn it here with a deep black velvet semi circle skirt just to show it off (the deep black skirt makes the jacket details stand out better on camera exposure) but looks best with a pencil to a line skirt in fact so probably adds to the late 40s date hypothesis.
It's a lovely piece and a UK size 8 or small or corseted 10. Looks best with a bullet bra as chest is quite roomy.
Brooch not included.
