    Vintage women's US Navy WAVES blue wool skirt (vintage size 20).

    MEASUREMENTS (approximate):
    Waist - 31 1/2"-32"
    Hips - 43"-44"
    Length size 20 S: 29 1/2"
    Length size 20 L: 34"-36"


    We were lucky enough to find some deadstock unissued WAVES skirts. We have several of each size available. About half have labels and half do not. Some have a bit of dirt or storage wear (nothing than couldn't be fixed with a visit to the dry cleaner). They are all dark blue 100% wool with the small pockets on the front and a metal side zipper. The color blue may vary slightly from piece to piece; the button on the side also varies in style. Almost all are unhemmed. Some have hem tape on the bottom, some do not.

    These ones do have a few small moth holes. Nothing too big, but more noticeable than the other smaller size WAVES skirts we have. A few have flaws on the hem tape.

    This style of WAVES skirt was the same during the war and in the years after the war. These skirts may be wartime or they may be postwar.

    These are a vintage size 20 which is much smaller than a modern size 20. The size may vary ever so slightly from piece to piece, but are all in the ranges listed above. The size 20 short and size 20 long are photographed together to show the difference in length. I only have long and short in this size, no regulars.
