The real deal, not a repro - Fantastic one piece WWII women's coveralls in dark blue denim. The shirt buttons down the front to waist, then it buttons into the waistband across the front of the pants. On the back the shirt is loose and just tucks into the waistband of the pants. Full length sleeves with fitted cuffs with a button on each. Small shoulder pads. There are also hidden buttons on the sides in each pocket, this should allow you to drop the seat of the pants for bathroom breaks during the workday. There is an embroidered 'Victory Volunteers' patch on the single pocket.
Condition - The coverall is in excellent condition. One buttonhole on the front of the waist has some fraying on the edges. The hem of the pants look like they had been shortened at one time - there is a very faint stitch line where previous stitching was (But NO fade from an old hem fold) The hem was down and raw when I bought the coveralls, so I just straight stitched a narrow hem on the legs. A button on the end of one sleeve has been replaced, not an exact match, but close.
The denim is nice and dark, no fade, no wear marks.
