Vintage 30s Middy Sandeze Sportswear Set Coral Top & Pants M
Ships ahoy! In this cute vintage ladies nautical middy outfit with sailor’s style top and matching bell bottom pants by Sandeze, circa late 30s early 40s.
The Art Deco era cusper consists of a medium weight coral or salmon colored cotton fabric with decorative white piping – in the form of a 2-piece set with belt, comprising a ladies middy style top or blouse and matching flared leg pants.
The blouse can be worn tucked in (as shown) or out, and has short sleeves, V neckline with squared sailor’s collar draping over the back, and a rope necktie (new replacement).
The flared leg pants are ankle length, and have a small change pocket in front, and a coil side zipper since it appears to have been replaced at one time (see pic). The ensemble is completed with a matching belt, which has mother of pearl buttons and loop closure.
*Please note -- I can see some small fade spots on the pants, a dark speck on the right inside pant leg as shown, and a few small brown spots on the back of the left sleeve as shown (see close-up pics).
The top has a single embroidered label for “Sandeze”, “Beachwear”, “Sportswear”, “Hollywood”, “Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.”.
