Cutest Early 1940s Mesh Two Piece Summer Set in Blue with White Floral Print


  • Product Description

      Vintage late 1930s suit is sporty and versatile. It's excellent worn together, and both pieces wear well separately! The fabric is a type that I once learned the name of, and have never remembered it or found it again, which is sad, because this open-weave, cheesecloth like rayon mesh is a favorite of mine. It's a pale cornflower blue, one of my favorite colors to use in a palette from this era. The short sleeved top has pintucks at the yoke and the hips. The cut is long, and it closes with shell buttons. The skirt is swingy and flared, with long darts that open to pleats at the front. It closes with buttons along the left side. Both pieces are unlined .

      This set is clean and ready to wear. The buttons have the rough finish of shell buttons that have been through the wash. The set has definitely been washed in the past. I've darned four little holes in the skirt, and there are a couple other single-strand breaks that were best left as is. There is an old darn at the left front hem of the blouse, and after photographing it, I realized I needed to fix three holes by the right pocket and two on the right chest. I've made two mends above the hem at back as well. There is some fade to the arms and upper back. This honestly makes it sound much worse than it is. I find nothing else to note.
