Pristine, WWII Officer's Chocolate Elastique Blouse. VERY RARE and HUGE wearable Size marked 44R. Check measurements for exact sizing. This one has the original Philadelphia QM Depot tag with a date of April 10th 1945, as well as standard Army Officers tag. This blouse is partially lined in satin. Measurements: Under-arm to Under-arm 23", Shoulder-Seam to Seam 19", Sleeve 25" (with 2" plus to extend), the waist measures to 19.75" and the back measures 30" from Base of collar to bottom of skirt. Although currently musty from storage this item is in Excellent condition, with a very few light moth nips to the left sleeve FANTASTIC for a 65 year old uniform!. Complete with Original Hand embroidered 9th AAF command patch executed in cotton thread on a great wool background. This patch is probably of English origin.

Why buy a reproduction (that most times are incorrectly built...(i.e. skirt too short, waist not tapered properly, no flare on the skirt) when you can have an original in this huge size?
