An original 1940s British made wrap overall dress which is the same pattern used by the WVS during the Second World War.
This workwear wrap is the same coloured and cut to those used by the WVS during the Second World War and into the 1950s. It is made from a sea green coloured sanforized cotton and features a wrap-over front which fastens with two belts at the back, after passing across the front. Two patch pockets are fitted to the front and it features a shawl collar and short sleeves.
Inside the dress the original label is still present and bears the maker's name and the size of 'WX'.
When laid flat the garment measures -
Chest - 22"
Shoulders - 15 3/4"
Length - 44"
The overalls are in worn condition with some small holes to the front as illustrated in the pictures in the pictures. They are still wearable and display well but please take time to study the pictures before purchasing.
A great piece of British workwear from the 1940s which may have been a WVS item and would make a good stand-in either way.
