Vintage 1940s 2pc sheer white seersucker full-length dress and short sleeve jacket blouse. Fabric is a beautiful textural see-through cream white. The skirt is very full with a yolked waist, there is a side zipper and fabric gatherings at the shoulders. The blouse has short, cuffed sleeves and square pearly buttons. Style is sleek and simple, casual or more formal depending on if you wear the jacket or not. There are belt loops but belt is not included. A slip will be required.
There are 2 distinct flaws, 1) a hole on the blouse above and to the left of the top button. The hole has been embroidered around the edges to prevent it from fraying I assume. 2) There is a tear on the lower right skirt near the hem. I believe it can be repaired, and because the skirt is full it wouldn't be noticeable. See last 2 photos for details. The set is still lovely and sturdy, with years more of life.
Fits like a size large, possibly an XL (see measurements).
Hips: free due to full skirt
Sleeve length: 5.5" (shoulder to cuff)
