1940s Strappy Playsuit


Rare and utterly fantastic early 1940s playsuit with a fun print, plunging back, sweet long tie and flared shorts. The piece is a little "as is" but far too fabulous to leave behind and overall a wonderful addition to a summer wardrobe! The playsuit buttons in the rear and tie secures and cinches the waist. The tie conceals a slightly "messy" repair on either side here (see close up) which I had strengthened, most likely from the waist pulling over time. the print and tie do both conceal well. A darkish mark on collar and a couple of other faint spots also fairly well concealed. A few hand stitches at the gusset, the piece is lined with rayon jersey which is wonderful as one does not need underwear if you so wish, outer fabric feels like cotton, likely a rayon/cotton blend. Sold as is. Please email queries prior to purchase.
