I just die over this fabulous two piece set! How perfect for summertime. This fun set was homemade, and isn't meant to cover much! It's quite daring, even for the late 40s. The set consists of a completely strapless top that ties around the back, and a cropped wrap blouse that can be ties at the front or back, depending on the look you want!. A novelty print of large, strange birds in orange, gray, teal, gold and brown makes the pieces even more fun! A one of a kind set, perfect for wearing with high waist white shorts.


Bust: 33"-37"
Length of bikini top: 6" at the bust
Length of blouse: 13"

Condition: Good, as-is
Someone had a habit of tying the halter top too snug, and strained the darts radiating from the hem. Also, it looks like there may have been a trim along the upper back shoulder at one time that has since been removed, leaving a string of tiny pin holes. These issues don't detract from the overall look - the bold novelty print talks right over them! The set is clean and ready to wear.
