Sweet Disorder Vintage
1940s Striped Playsuit
Vintage 1940s playsuit. Sauciest details~ lingerie style cutwork and hand-stitched embellishment on the top. The cups are separate from the band for a peek a boo effect. Bottoms have a cute mini pocket, high waistline and flirty short shorts length. The band of the top is elasticated at the back for a good fit and finishes with two little lucite buttons. Shorts zip up the side with a metal zipper, no elastic in the legs. (The zip works perfectly, the shorts are a little snug at the waist on the mannequin so I didn't force it all the way closed in the photos.) Suit is skillfully handmade no label. Top is lined with modesty panels in the cups, the shorts are unlined. Fabric is lightweight, feels cottony. Excellent condition, no stains or damage. Only gentlest wear. The elastic in the top is still stretchy. Clean fresh & ready to wear.
Flat Measurements~Top- the band measures 13.5" across the front when the top is closed. It stretches to 15" max. The cups measure 6" across the widest part at the bottom, and 6" vertically from where the straps attach at the top to the bottom of the cup, band not included. Shorts~ Waist 12.25" Hip 17" Rise 14" Length waist to hem 10". There is a little stretch in the shorts but not enough to accommodate larger than the measurements. Shown on a US size 4 mannequin and a good fit, a little snug on the 25" waist.
