Gender: Girls' Main Colour: Black and White
Decade: 1950s Vintage Type: True Vintage
Look: Matching Blouse and Shorts Set Material: 100% Cotton
Style: Outfits & Sets Brand: Texis Wash and Wear
Size: 7 Years
This fun girls matching blouse and shorts date c.1950s. They are the 'Wash and Wear' brand, fashioned by 'Texsis' of San Antonio, USA. Such a fabulous fabric and style - you'll be wishing these came in a grown up size! Even though the set dates from the 1950s, they have only been lightly worn a handful of times by my daughter. I purchased them for her a couple of years ago, and they came to us unworn with the original tags which I have retained (the tags will be included in this sale as they include washing instructions on the reverse side). :-)

The blouse in white poplin, features a black polka-dot print. Shaped wing (roll) collar with top-stitching, fastening with three buttons down the front opening. Patch pocket on the left front with flap and button detail. The extended shoulder has a fabulous scalloped edge. Side chest darts, and the back is dartless for relaxed fit. The curved hem-line is overlocked as this little treasure would have been designed to be tucked in. However, it can just as easily be worn out as preferred.

The shorts are in strong black cotton with a striped weave, and white polka-dot print. Metal zip opening on the left, with single button fastening at the waist. Both side seams have an angled side pocket. Single tucks at the front waist, and single darts each side of centre-back.

Both items are washed, pressed and ready to wear! Please refer to postage information below.

FABRIC CONTENT & CARE: Made from 100% cotton. Machine washable.

BLOUSE LABELLED: Size 8 (USA Girls). All Cotton. Texis, San Antonio.


SIZE: Fits modern day girl approx 7 years but PLEASE go by the measurements allowing for ease of movement and a comfortable fit. For example, the blouse should be suitable for chest size up to 26" (66cm); the shorts would be suitable for 21" waist (53cm).

  • Width across back, shoulder to shoulder 15" (38cm)
  • Chest 29" (73.5 cm)

Thanks for stopping by! Terms and Conditions noted below . . . .

T E R M S   &   C O N D I T I O N S

Welcome to Catwalk Creative where excellent customer service is guaranteed! All merchandise is thoughtfully packaged and emails are dealt with promptly. I take recycling issues very seriously, so any wasted packaging materials are recycled and I re-use cardboard boxes to ship merchandise where possible.


UK Customers: Payment within 3 days of purchase. PayPal preferred but on certain listings I also accept UK postal orders, banker's draft or cheque. If sending a cheque, you will have to wait up to 6 business days for the cheque to clear plus delivery time. Goods are posted out only when I have the banks authorisation that your cheque has cleared (rather than your own confirmation).  Customers paying by e-cheque will also have to wait at least 10 business days before item(s) can be dispatched.

International Customers: PayPal only within 3 days of purchase. Payment in Pounds Sterling (£). Customers paying by e-cheque will have to wait at least 10 business days before your item(s) can be dispatched.

You do not need a PayPal account to complete the PayPal checkout process but you must have a valid debit or credit card (please refer to PayPal to see accepted cards).

NON-PAYMENT: If payment is not received within the time specified and you make no attempt to contact me, the transaction will be cancelled and reported to eBay in order that I can recoup my fees. Whilst items are taken 'off the shelves' it means that other eBay customers cannot purchase them.

P O S T A G E   &   D E L I V E R Y

I cannot guarantee the actual delivery date/time of your merchandise. However, I can guarantee a super-quick dispatch service. So providing payment is received in full, your goods will be posted within 24 hours - the same day in some instances. Merchandise is dispatched daily from the UK (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays). International customers (non UK) are responsible for any customs fees, duty or tax charges.

I love to combine shipping! Discounts are automatically included for multiple purchases. However, if you buy several items on one invoice and I find you have overpaid the shipping fee, I will always refund the difference to your PayPal account.

My postage fees are based on the actual weight of your parcel plus up to £1.00 (GBP) for packaging materials (unless a very heavy object is being shipped, in which case a higher packaging fee may be included). Packaging costs include things such as tissue wrap, bubble wrap, tamper-proof/water proof mailing bag, cardboard box and/or gift box and transportation.

UK Customers: There are various postage options available including Royal Mail Signed For or Royal Mail Special next day delivery. Evidence of postage is always retained and all parcels include a return address label. Any undelivered parcels will be returned directly to me. Royal Mail offer a superb and safe postal service so it's extremely rare that parcels go missing in transit.

UK delivery (guideline only), based on the postage option chosen

MyHermes Courier: 2-4 business days (Mon-Fri) following dispatch date
Royal Mail First Class: 1-2 business days (Mon-Fri) following dispatch date
Royal Mail Second Class: 2-3 business days (Mon-Fri) following dispatch date
Royal Mail Next Day: Guaranteed delivery by 1pm next day.

International Customers: In order to keep shipping as competitive as possible, goods less than £20.00 are usually shipped by Royal Mail International 'Small Packets' airmail. However, if you wish to insure your parcel, please choose Royal Mail International Tracked or Royal Mail International Signed. Evidence of postage is retained and all parcels include a return address label. Any undelivered parcels will be returned to me. Please note that in all the years of dispatching goods worldwide, I have never had a parcel go missing.

International delivery times
vary and are based on the postage option you have chosen. The delivery time will depend on the destination and whether your parcel has to go through Customs. You are responsible for paying any customs charges, duty or taxes. Royal Mail aim to deliver to the country of destination within 3-7 business days (Mon-Fri). It's then down to your local postal services to complete the delivery process. Expect delivery within 15 business days but always be prepared to wait up to 25 business days. International parcels are subject to delays caused by Customs checks and other unforeseen circumstances which are beyond my control. You should also expect further delays at busy times such as Christmas and Bank Holidays.

If your parcel is undelivered due to your failure to receive or collect it, and you wish to make arrangements for re-delivery, you are responsible for paying the re-shipping costs.

R E T U R N S   P O L I C Y

Catwalk Creative is a small online business and as such, operates in line with UK Distance Selling Regulations. This policy is operative from the day after you receive your merchandise for 14 days, and applies no matter what the reason for return. However, in order to comply you must follow these instructions:

1) E-mail FIRST before posting merchandise back. Failure to do so will result in delays. I expect customers to provide me with the same level of courtesy that I offer, so please keep me informed. Contact me immediately via eBay or e-mail quoting your item number and reason for return. I always respond quickly to enquiries.

2) Postage/shipping costs/customs and duty fees are non-refundable. Buyer pays the return postage.

3) Goods should be posted back in the same condition they were sent out and returned in their original packaging and unworn/unused. Any sign of usage or damage (including cigarette or perfume smells) will terminate this refund policy.

4) Catwalk Creative Vintage is UK based so if you live outside the UK and wish to return goods that don't fit you properly, or for any other reason, please clearly mark your parcel in bold letters: "RETURNED GOODS" or "RETURNED MERCHANDISE". I do not expect to have to pay Customs Fees on goods that you are returning. Any customs fees you have paid on receipt of your goods are non-refundable.

5) I recommend returning goods by a recorded method and retain proof of postage (Certificate of Postage). You should ensure adequate insurance cover is provided as I am not responsible for the safe delivery of returned merchandise. I will process your refund only when the goods have been received safely back. Monies will be refunded via the same method they were originally paid (usually via PayPal).

6) Refunds are processed immediately the goods are received back but you may have to wait up to 10 business days for PayPal to credit your account.
