This lovely 1940s vintage rayon playsuit is a rare find and designed to fit a pre or young teen. Of particular note is the magnificent novelty print depicting Roman warriors, chariots and pillared buildings interspersed between horizontal rows of traditional Roman motifs in pale blue, pink navy and soft grey. The loose blouse style bodice has short sleeves and a shirt collar with a central button stand that hosts 5 x glass bead buttons. The fabric is loosely gathered on either side at the front of the garment above the waistline. The shorts are wide legged and finish just above the knee. This is a charming children's garment for the collector or costumier, or could look really striking on a petite adult, provided that it is noted the hip is a very slight measurement at 30". Would best suit a US size 00 or UK size 2/4 and someone small in stature (under 5'2"). Unlabelled but very well tailored and in superb vintage condition with no faults to note.
