A siren suit was a practical garment which came into vogue during the early years of the Second World War. The idea was that it could be pulled on over other clothes to keep the wearer warm (and unencumbered by long skirts) if she had to leave her houses - or any other place where she was - during the night because of air raids. 1940-1943 Inspiration, Outfits, Suits, Clothes, Winter, Vintage, 40s Fashion, Nightwear

What a delight! Regency doll and trousseau set.
