vintage candy stripe fine cotton playsuit in apple green and white c. 1940s
Such a lovely colour! Candy striped in green and white step in romper or playsuit, with original buttons.
The straps are an early manmade ribbon, you can see that they've been adjusted historically a couple of times but I've left as they are as they seem a good length. The darts have also been opened to the thigh when you look closely, and while they could be very easily reinstated I left as is as they make the sizing a little more flexible.
Measures: labelled 36, I'd say a modern uk10
Bust 34" approx
Waist 27" max
Hips 40” but will accommodate 42-44” max due to unstitched pleats
Shoulder to waistline approx 13"
Front rise 14"
Length from shoulder to hem approx 30"
Overall very clean with signs of previous adjustments on straps at edges, as shown.
Dart has been unpicked as shown, not obvious at all as is pleated. Could easily be reinstated.
One pull to fabric as shown. Generally good, immediately wearable!
