Sweet Disorder Vintage
1940s Rainbow Two Piece Playsuit
Vintage 1940s two piece playsuit. Fabulous candy colors in Missoni~esque stripes. Original Deco yellow buttons perfectly accent the sweetheart neckline and sides of the shorts. Tie back halter top with classic 40s styling. High-waisted shorts are flat front for a smooth silhouette. The fabric is a stretchy, thick synthetic knit. Shorts button down one side for easy in and out. Well made suit~ the top and shorts are fully lined in a stretchy cotton knit. There is the remnant of a label but it is illegible. Excellent condition. Only notes a tiny spot of wear to the fabric near the buttons on one side (see photo). A little color transfer on the inner knickers of the bottoms (see photo). Otherwise only gentle wear consistent with age. The fabrics are supple and strong, there is no staining or damage. Clean fresh & ready to wear.

Shorts~Waist 12.5" Hip 17" Rise 13" Length waist to hem 12". Shown on a US size 4 mannequin and a good fit. You could move the top button to add 1/2" at the waist.
