Please read first: ABSOLUTELY NO RETURNS ON THIS ITEM
This listing is for an immaculate never worn 1940's - 1950's era waitress uniform still wrapped in the box and tissue - vintage size 12. Upper bodice is a solid white while the rest of the piece has tiny embroidered pink roses on a white I believe rayon dress. They don't do that kind of work anymore.
Stand-out hip pockets with fold-over cuffs - solid white with small pearly buttons. Across the front of the uniform - across the bodice measures 20" laying flat on the table. There are 3 small pearly buttons in the upper white bodice and one hidden tinier button under the collar.
There is a long silver zipper that runs (hides actually) down the entire front of the uniform stopping 4.5" short of the bottom hem. It is hidden by the fold over trim. There is also one tiny silver snap under neath the trim 7" down from the bottom of the white bodice. I assume to keep the zipper from showing.
The waist is tucked and measures 14" across laying flat on the table. There are hundreds of those tiny pink embroidered roses on the uniform.
Pointed and split turned-up cuffs on the sleeves with white pearly buttons.
The inside label says Tiffiny Uniforms NY - with the 12 inside a shield frame.
Total 1940's - 1950's silhouette but very sexy and fitted in the bodice and waist. This is such a unique piece that I've been hoarding for awhile now - a bit Bettie Page fetish-style, don't you think? Rockabilly Mid Century. Perfect and unworn, a great rare piece! A movie studio should be grabbing this one for some cool movie. Although I called it Halloween it's really in my opinion more of a little piece of history. Lucy Rockabilly memento.
Condition: Deadstock / Mint / Unworn Size: Small to Medium (Marked a vintage Size 12)
Also included is the matching apron. Outer framework is embroidered with the same lovely pink roses. Center is the white rayon. The Main part of the apron measures 11 inches across with each "String or tie" measuring approximately 39" for a total wrap around length of 89"
This piece came from the estate of a woman here in Las Vegas that owned an old German restaurant - she was quite the world traveler and I acquired several pieces from this estate.
I am far from a clothing expert but knew to snatch this one up - if I have missed an important part of this description please do not hesitate to ask. Due to the immaculate condition of these 2 pieces there will absolutely be NO RETURNS on this item. If your a size 14 - 16 and think you can "squeeze" into it - please pass on this listing.
If you feel I have misrepresented this item in any way please do not buy it. I am quite sure there are other uniforms to buy on eBay. And I don't care if I hang onto it for another 10 years. It would make a fabulous window display if you have a shop. This is a little pricey so ask any questions you want before purchase. I want you to be happy with your purchase.
This item will ship via USPO with delivery tracking fully insured.
Thanks for looking.
