Original Vintage 1950s Dress with matching bolero jacket which has been created from the most gorgeous crisp cotton in Baby blue with white polka dots and a ruffle design in white and navy blue.
It’s an absolute treat and completely unworn - exceptionally wearable today. It’s gorgeous, the fabric has a fabulous nostalgic rustle as the lady moves. The bolero is styled with a winged collar
Lovely styling to the neck, of the dress which leads gently into a fitted bodice with a belted waist over an exceptionally full and generous skirt, with stylised pockets at the hip.
Overall it’s fresh and clean looking.
It was created in 1955 and placed immediately into a Private Collection belonging to a vogue fashion designer. Its exquisitely designed, with the utmost style to compliment the wearer. The garments have been freshly dry cleaned and are now ready to wear.
