Super cute 1940s playsuit set comprising of shorts and a halter neck top.
Made from black grosgrain, the top has ruching down the side of the cups and ties in the back and at the neck.
The "shorts" are a pair of knickers with a skirt on top. The skirt has a metal back zip and a tie back belt.
The top is labelled size 16 which means it was designed for a 34" bust, however there is a little bit of wiggle room and it will fit up to a 36" bust and is best suited to someone with an under-bust of 28" to ensure the ties are long enough to fasten.
The shorts are labelled size 14, so should be for a 26" waist and 35" hip, but here are the actual measurements;
- flat waist 13 1/4"
- flat hip 19"
- centre back skirt length 15"
Beautiful. It is deadstock and has the original label. No issues on the garment. However, this had been stored in a garage for a number of years and has slight storage odour which will wash out but as the piece has never been worn I have left this for the buyer to do.
