RESERVED FOR KHARONN - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 1 OF 2 due 12th June 2023
This amazing romper was made in the 1940s from striped cotton in a beautiful shades of pale blue, blush pink and white. It was cut in the classic one piece play suit silhouette with shorts at the bottom, just perfect for summer. A sharp notched lapel collar leads to size square white buttons that fasten the piece at the front and contrasting horizontal trim finishes off the flattering short sleeves. Matching horizontally striped fabric was also used to define the waist, giving the appearance of a two piece, and to highlight the functional patch pocket on the bust. The legs are beautifully tailored with gores opening up from the hip to add volume at the leg. At the back, a shoulder yolk adds structure and tiny pleats give definition below the yolk.
Rise: 17 1/4” to top of waistband

Waist yo hem: 17 1/2”
The play suit is in very good condition with only a few minor marks, frays and areas of untidy seam repairs as pictured.
This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.
They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in pure white cotton.
They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.
We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
