♛Measurements

Tagged a 36

Best for XS/Sm, possibly pushing it into M range. Obviously the closer you are to the measurements, the more of a snug fit it'll be, and vice-versa.

I'm a busty size 4/6 and it was snug through chest with the buttons closed, so I mostly just wore open over t-shirts and tanks.

We did not overstretch these for measurements

Bust (underarm area doubled) about 36" fully closed down the front, 40" stretched gently

Waistband area about 28"  slack, 32" pulled gently

Shoulder to hem about 21"

Shoulders about 17"

Sleeves, shoulder to cuff about 21 1/2"

♛Condition

Very good vintage condition. Ships out freshly cleaned and sanitized. Nearly 80+ years old.

Elbow of one sleeve/backside has a couple period repairs.

The underarms are lightly felted as is typical with these; not bad and not seen during wear.

There's a tan freckle on left arm on the schoolhouse's chimney. A subtle trace of toning on the bottom of one white heart. Presents well...nobody notices her small imperfections.
