I am reluctantly releasing this incredible 1940s chartreuse playsuit from my personal collection — I purchased it for myself but it is sadly too small for me with no hope of ever fitting 💔 would not sell this if it fit me 💔

Everything about this playsuit/romper is SO unbelievably good. I buy a lot of vintage and I wouldn’t say that lightly.

The colors are a delightfully unusual combination — chartreuse base, blue flower and the kelly green stem — I love the contrast of this particular shade of blue with the chartreuse. Experimenting with what shoes to wear with this will be so fun.

The way the appliqué flower drapes over the left shoulder is bold and accentuates the broad shoulder style of the playsuit while the elongated darker green stem elegantly draws the eye towards the fitted waist.

A very special and well planned detail is that the arms have a blue facing the same shade as the flower so when you move your arms you will catch glimpse of the same blue.

I saved the best to describe last … the clear plastic buttons at the waist and up the back of the playsuit are sooooo cute ! Go look at the photos just to admire the buttons seriously. The center button at waist was replaced with a rhinestone button, which I actually love!

Ah the more I write of the charms of this playsuit, the more my heart aches to keep it! Snap it up fast if all the measurements work for you — I can promise it will not be easy to find another one that is this unique and so contemporary and has such good colors. This playsuit definitely has a vintage 1940s look but does not feel out of place in 2021! Truly a timeless summer outfit.

Very good to excellent vintage condition with a few very small flaws. See last three photos: imperfections under each arm that could easily be darned with a few stitches/not visible when worn and a tiny area on the blue flower that could use a few stitches. I can provide seamstress services for a small additional fee, please message me to make arrangements for mending !
