We have been wanting to make this fabulous new 1940s style crop jacket since a similar style was spotted in a photograph from 1941. The 'crop' or bolero jacket captures the boxy styles of the early '40s perfectly and has been created here in 'Abraham Moons' wool.
If you're a fan of good tailoring and the early 1940s silhouette, you will love this stunning 1940s style jacket. We are absolutely delighted with this fabulous little jacket - which brought much joy and delight here! :-)
Strong shoulders, an elegant shawl collar and diagonal patch details perfectly capture this iconic look. The early 40s boxy shape places a lot of emphasis in the upper body and we put a lot of effort into creating the perfect shoulder shape. This resulted in a significant shoulder pad and roll with three tucks into the sleeve head. The shawl collar softens the shape slightly - by just adding that extra detail. The non-functional diagonal flaps below the shoulder emulate a pocket and are hand finished. Fully lined
Whilst we have a matching skirt also available - this exquisite jacket also goes beautifully with our high waisted Swing Pants and 1940s skirts.

This jacket is fabulous and the green fleck wool is lovely and very thick. It fits a little differently than the Americana wool jacket which I own. I'm usually a 14 or 16 (32GG), but I have the Americana in an 18 because I like to layer it and the waist is very snug. The only size left was an 18 for this so I tried it but I found it to fit too large, and kind of hang off my shoulders. I think a smaller size would be better, and I wonder if I just need jackets that have fastenings in the front due to my small shoulders and large bust.
Adorable jacket! I ordered along with the matching skirt and now I have the perfect suit. It will definitely pair well with other skirts and trousers, too. I can't say enough about the quality and beauty of the wool.
