Vintage 1950s summer jacket UNUSED ladies striped blazer DORMA fabric DEV ROU


A ladies' smart cotton jacket, made in the 1950s, but never used.
The brand is Dev Rou by Devas.
Made of a Dorma minimum-iron drip-dry fabric - this appears to be a cotton cloth, treated so it can be washed like wool without excessive creasing.
Turquoise and beige printed stripes on white, with turquoise collar and cuffs.
Unlined
Three-quarter-length sleeves
Short length
Three gold-coloured buttons
There are (of course) no sewn-in garment care labels.
Washing advice is given on the back of the blue Dorma tag.
This dress is unsold shop stock from a drapers' shop which has recently closed.
It has been properly stored, and is in very good condition, apart from one or two small marks, as detailed below.
The original pre-decimal hand-written price tag is attached to the garment.
It cost 26/11 (twenty-six shillings and elevenpence).
Size: The size is marked in the garment as 36 - this is probably the HIP measurement, which would make it roughly a modern Size 12.
  • The actual bust measurement is 41", which is a little generous for a size 12, so the jacket was either designed to be worn loose, or else it may have been wrongly marked.
  • Length (shoulder to hem) is 22".
  • Sleeve length (shoulder to cuff) is 16"
  • Sleeve length (underarm to cuff) is 11 1/2"
Colour:
  • Turquoise, beige and white
Condition
Unused.
This jacket is unsold shop stock from a drapers' shop which has recently closed.
It has been properly stored, and is in very good condition, but NOT quite perfect.
It is more than half a century old, and has a couple of small marks.
One is between the two lower buttons - it looks like a drop of tea.
It is shown in the close-up picture, beside the blue Dorma label.
This mark is about a quarter of an inch across.
The other mark is on the sleeve.
It is about an inch long, and looks like a pencil mark.
This is shown in the other close-up picture.
The gold colouring on the buttons is just beginning to flake - you might wish to replace the buttons.
The original hand-written price tag is still attached to the jacket.
It cost 26/11 (twenty-six shillings and elevenpence).
As this dress is over half a century old, it should be hand-washed or dry cleaned before use, and treated more gently than if it were recently made.
