Vintage 1950s Blue Playsuit Romper

Fantastic late 1950s possibly early 60s romper playsuit in a light teal-ish blue. It is too large for dress form so I've pinned it for the photos. Inner bullet bra support, inner panty, shoulder straps which are adjustable to 3 different lengths via buttons inside the top and can be worn straight as I've shown or crisscrossed in back. The fabric is textured in such a way as too imitate waves, which is kinda cool. There is a tie belt attached to the center back. I've shown it tied in most photos but then left it hanging in the last. Smocking on either side at the waist. Back metal zipper with a extra hook and eye at the top, and fully lined in white cotton. Outside feels like cotton too. Definitely a larger size. No label but you can see where there was one. That said, this is very, very similar to a Catalina playsuit I had in the shop at one time, so it could be Catalina. That's just a suspicion though, I've nothing to back that up.

Excellent vintage condition. The blue color seems maybe slightly faded, but that's hard to tell if its actually faded or just intentionally part of the color. There are two pinhead sized white dots that look like paint perhaps on the front and 2 tiny black dots, like a pen hit it.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust waist and hip.
Bust: 41" The smocking across the back makes this very flexible though so it can go quite a bit bigger and is probably intended to based on the other measurements.
Waist: 34"
Hip: 45"
Shoulder to bottom of crotch: 35." give or take depending on where you adjust the straps.

Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected. Please feel free to convo me with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
