Gorgeous Jitterbuggin' 1940s Style Reproduction Manzanita Tie-Style Sunsuit in Bold Striped Cotton
FabGabs is delighted bring you quality reproduction pieces by Northwest clothing line, Jitterbuggin'. This well-made brand is no longer active, and we have been lucky enough to consign their deadstock. That means that while there's multiple sizes and colors of many pieces, the quantity is limited - just like vintage, there will never be more.
We have three cotton sunsuit styles from this brand. This style, the Manzanita, is my favorite - in fact, I own two of them. This piece has a convertible halter top, and unique, fully wrapped bottoms. Specifically, the top offers classic straps on each side, but also an optional halter - you can see it in the last few images - her originals - worn up, or it can be tied as bow, as we've shown it. The bottoms are a continuous piece, and the front wraps around the back to close with a button, then the back piece wraps around the front to tie. The colors are rich - my images look dark in comparison to her original shots, but the accurate saturation is something between those points. It's a gorgeous textile.
There is an uneven number of tops and bottoms in these pieces. Once the tops are sold out, the bottoms will be available separately. Only three complete sunsuits can be made in this set.
These are close-outs, there are no returns for fit.
These measurements are taken with the back tied at the maximum possible fit. However, if you have a wider back you could gain more room by adding hook and eyes for a wider fit, rather than tying it. And of course, they can always be tied tighter.

These have a bit of adjustability to the hips, since they wrap, and according to my experience, can work well for a curvy posterior. The waist measurement is based on the measurement of the front piece, buttoned to the back, but they can also be tied tighter if desired.
