* VINTAGE ELIZABETH STEWART BLUE FISH BOY CUT SUIT SWIMSUIT ROMPER PLAYSUIT WITH WRAP SKIRT
From the Vintage Fashion Guild and my thanks to them:
“Elisabeth Stewart was the daughter of the E.W. Stewart who founded Catalina Swimsuits. Eventually when the business was sold, she started Elisabeth Stewart Swimwear. The suits were known for being very wearable and flattering.”
An adorable vintage boy cut swimsuit and wrap skirt swimsuit /playsuit by Elisabeth Stewart adorned with purplish blue fish with white dots. Two rows of bluish-purple piping across the top of the suit and a bit lower. Double spaghetti straps on the suit that are adjustable - soft cups with no padding which has a stretchy elastic thin band which hooks in the back - flap under the Talon zipper so no skin is exposed - elastic on the sides of the suit - silky nylon lace trimmed panties attached to the suit inside - loops for a belt and I have added white cording for the belt but did not show it in the photos. The background of the fabric in the photos has a yellowy tinge to it but it is actually an off white with some blue thin streeks and blue fish with a purplish ting to them.
The matching skirt is a wrap around that ties on a bow on the side. Tiny slit on the waistband for the tie to go through if you wish. There is also more piping onthe waistband that matches the piping at the top of the suit. There ia a pocket in one seam.
Just an adorable playsuit set, romper with wrap skirt or a swimsuit with a wrap around skirt. Very good quality fabric and a gorgeous vintage swimsuit set with swimming fish!
THE SUIT IS NOT SPANDEX/LYCRA LIKE TODAY'S SUITS AND THERE IS NO STRETCH TO COTTON EXCEPT FOR THE STRETCHY INSERTS ON THE SIDES SO GO BY THE MEASUREMENTS & MAKE SURE IT WILL FIT.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
