This winter, I found a set of sailor uniforms at auction that belonged to a service man who served on the USS Mattaponi during WWII. Nothing can beat a cute pair of vintage sailor pants. They looked awfully small at the time but when I got them home and put them on they fit perfect. One thing I love about vintage sailor pants is the waist.... it's completely adjustable and can be made to fit tighter or looser. I always have that problem with my pants, when the hips fit the waist is to big.
History of the USS Mattaponi:
The Mattaponi was a fuel ship which served in the United States Navy during World War II, periodically during the 1950s, and in the Vietnam War. She was the only U.S. Navy ship named for the Mattaponi River in eastern Virginia. The ship was decommissioned in 1970 and sold for scrap metal in 1973.
