Vintage 1930s 40s Tennis Uniform Dress Playsuit One Piece Skort Size M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a wonderful vintage tennis uniform dress or playsuit - not exactly a dress as it has a skort bottom.  The piece dates either to the late 1930s or possibly the early 40s.  It does up with a brass zipper at the front skirt and with three white plastic buttons up the bodice.  There are loops around the waist and it has a matching belt.  It has an open neckline in a V shape with a shirt-type collar that is fairly wide and pointy.  It is made of a cream white, almost pale yellow, faille fabric, probably a wood rayon.  The skirt is pleated and cut wide to provide ease of movement.  The piece is unlined.

Label: no label, but definitely manufactured

Sizing: No size is indicated, but please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders:  20” across, including the cap sleeves

Bust:  36” around

Waist: 26” around

Hips: 36” around

Overall length: 32”, measured flat

Condition: It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear or tear, stains or odours - there is a bit of stitch unraveling at the back right sleeve (see last close-up photo), very minor.

These old tennis uniforms are becoming very difficult to come by - this is a very nice example!
