This early 20th Century chambray woman's work uniform features a blouse with a V neckline and a cinched waist and an A-line skirt. The front of the blouse buttons closed with 5 mother or pearl buttons and a hook and eye along the neckline. The cinched waist and tapered sleeves lend a feminine feel. Each sleeve has 6 mother of pearl buttons. Two buttons on the back of the blouse are used to attached it to the skirt. The skirt has a two button closure on the left side and an on-seam pocket on the right side. Pleating at the back of the waistband allows for a more flowy fit. Discoloration at the bottom of the skirt suggests previous alteration. Both pieces have a tag sewn in with the name ?Sophie Wabin?, possibly the owner of the garments.
