    Original WWII WAVES blue wool uniform tunic. 


    MEASUREMENTS (approximate):
    Bust - 33"
    Waist - 28.5"
    Length - 24 1/2"


    It has the blue "Made and sold under the authority of the U.S. Navy W.A.V.E.S." tag and a tag in the pocket for name and rate.


    It is named to Audrey I Kersten. She was born in Feb 1924 and served from March of 1944 until October of 1945, in a clerical position with the U.S. Navy WAVES.


    It is in good, wearable condition overall, but does have some flaws. The buttons have been replaced. The collar patches are glued on instead of sewn (some glue residue is visible). The inside lining has repairs (mostly on the arms). There are some moth holes along the hem on the bottom; they are not very noticeable when worn. There are a few very tiny pinprick moth nibbles (so small they don't show up in photos). It has light storage wear and hasn't been cleaned. It is still wearable as the mothing is not too distracting.
