Fabulous 1940s Matching Tropical Shorts and Skirt Set in Light Aqua with Brown


  • Product Description

      This vintage early 1940s set is a delightful rarity. While it's top is sadly lost to time, it will be perfect with a brown blouse or tie-top. A homemade set, this charming two piece is one of a kind! The ground is a pale, aqua green, while the tropical floral is brown. The shorts are just perfection, high waisted and wide legged, with a side button closure. The skirt has a shirred waistband and wrap style ties. The crisp, lightweight cotton is ideal for summer, whether you wear them together or separately!

      The set has been gently hand cleaned and is ready to wear. The top two buttons on the shorts are replacements. There is a single small spot on the front left of the shorts. The back of the shorts has some very mild fade, and five teeeeeny pin-tip spots that I think are maybe printing errors. 

      I think that the self-fabric ties for the waist of the skirt were attached backwards when this was made, as there's a cute brown detail at the center front of the skirt. The waistband construction is a bit wonky, too, but it still wears beautifully. The hooks were missing from the side closure, and I have added two new ones. I find nothing else to note!
