Description

Late 50s to early 60s shirt and shorts set.
Novelty print of a painterly street/cafe scene, with a little kitty cat on the pavement!
Pure cotton, Made in Italy and SUPERB quality.
Pink, orange, brown and blue against white.
Button-front straight-cut shirt with long sleeves, rever collar.
Shorts fasten with side metal zip, and are elasticated at the back.
Flat felled seams on the shirt, and serged seams on the short.
This would be fab with a sun top or bikini top, picking out any of the colours from the print.

Measurements, blouse (to be worn slightly loose):
Bust 40"
Waist 39"
Hem 39"
Shoulder to shoulder 16.5"
Sleeve 22.5"
Length excl collar 26"

Shorts:
Waist 26" unstretched to 30" fully stretched
Hips (9" below waist) 38"
Rise 11.5"
Waist to hem at side 13"
Inside leg 2.5"

Marked Italian Size 46 (roughly a modern UK 10)

Condition: The cuff openings are slightly stressed with tiny tears at the point. The shorts hems have probably been restitched as the needlework here is not quite up to the high quality elsewhere, though you hardly notice with the print. Their length appears original though, as the facings are intact. See last two pictures. Otherwise, excellent!

Additional policies

CONDITION GRADES

PRISTINE: As new, with absolutely no flaws or wear
EXCELLENT: Previously worn with no notable flaws
VERY GOOD: Previously worn with minimal noted flaws
GOOD: Visible wear, noted flaws, may need light repair
FAIR: Numerous noted flaws, may need repair, may not take repeated wear
POOR/CUTTER: Damaged beyond repair or wear, study piece only

CLOTHING: HOW WE MEASURE AND FITTING ADVICE

The measurements given are the garment's size, not your body size. A garment needs to be bigger than you are, so allow at least an inch or two for ease of movement in addition your body measurements, more for coats or loose fitting garments. To be sure of a good fit, measure a similar garment that fits you well and compare. Feel free to ask us for advice.

Measurements are taken with the garment laid flat, and kept 'relaxed' not stretched, doubling where appropriate.

Bust or Chest: underarm to underarm, doubled
Waist: across natural waist/narrowest point, doubled
Hips: measured side to side 8" below waist, doubled
Shoulders: from shoulder seam to opposite shoulder seam, at the top
Sleeve length: from shoulder seam to cuff,
Raglan sleeve length: from back of neck to cuff.
Sleeve inseam: from underarm to cuff
Bodice length: from highest point of garment (eg back of neck, top of shoulder, top of strapless bodice), excluding any collar, to waist.
Overall length: from highest point of garment (eg back of neck, top of shoulder, top of strapless bodice, top of waist), excluding any collar, to lowest point of hem. Men's jackets are always measured from back of neck, below collar, to hem.

OTHER INFORMATION

Clothes: Larger sizes may be pinned back on the mannequin to show the shape. Full skirts may be shown over a full petticoat. Unless otherwise stated jewellery, belts and other accessories are not included.

Unless otherwise stated garments will not be dry-cleaned, but will be either hand-laundered or steam-cleaned to freshen if necessary.

We aim for accurate colours, but be aware that colours show differently on different monitors.

We operate from a smoke-free home. We do have a cat so can't guarantee cat hair free, though we don't allow him near the stock! Some items may have traces of scent or pet hair from their previous owners, though anything significant will be pointed out.

Please ask if you have any questions.
