WWII US Women's Naval Reserve WAVES White Uniform
- Source: eBay
You've probably been looking for one of these for some time. This is a World War II Women's Naval Reserve (WAVE) uniform, in glorious condition. Not so easy to find any more. Summer white. I've owned it for about twenty years and actually wore it from time to time. (It looks great on!).
The uniform was obviously drycleaned before it was put away. You might find just a speck of two of surface soil, and a bit of age toning at the waist, but no wear or damage. Unbelievably great condition. You could throw it on and march right off to the WWII event in Reading Pa next June.
The badges are present, the stars on the sleeve and all the brass military buttons. Label sewn inside jacket reads: Made and Sold Under Authority of U.S Navy U.S Women's Naval Reserve
Skirt measurements: waist: about 27 1/2"; skirt length: about 30". Jacket: armpit to armpit flat across the front: about 18"; waist flat across the front 14": shoulder seam to shoulder seam across the back: about 16"; sleeve length: about 22"; jacket length; about 24 1/2". I was about a size 6 or 8 when I wore this uniform, if that helps.
