Gorgeous two-piece 1940's set includes a black skirt and striped blouse.

There are no labels on this set, so I'm not positive they were originally meant as a set. However I purchased them from an estate that had them as a set. They are of the same era, size and suit each other so well, I am keeping them together.

The blouse is made of rayon and is a stunning pin stripe of blues, red, white, and black. The shoulders are smocked and the sleeves are long and designed to fit closely at the wrist and flow up the arm. It is a pullover style with vents at each side seam for ease. The waistband is wide and, due to the length, will accommodate a variety of waist sizes.

I expected to see hooks and eyes or snaps on the waistband, allowing it to wrap or otherwise fasten, however I found none. I simply pinned it at the back, however you may do as you choose. A pretty rhinestone brooch clipping the ends would be lovely!

The blouse measures 38" at the bust and is 17" from back neck to bottom edge. Due to the waistband described above, it will fit a variety of waist sizes. I would reccommend the wearer not have overly large shoulders or bust in order to comfortably get into and out of this blouse. My mannequin has a 34" bust and average shoulders and it fits her well.

The skirt feels like a rayon / cotton blend. It is a cool wrap style, with two buttons at the waistband which may be adjusted to fit a slightly larger or smaller waist. The right side of the skirt is open and creates a pretty swag at the hip.

Without adjusting the buttons, the skirt currently measures 26" at the waist and is 26" long from top of waist to lower edge. It is unlined, but the fabric is substantial and opaque. Because of the wrap design, the hip area is not confined by seams and will easily fit an average size hip in porportion with the waist. My mannequin's hip is 36" and it fits her well.

Very good condition. I found no significant flaw with this set.
