This mauve cotton, day to cocktail, 1950s dress and peplum jacket set has lovely scalloped trim on the bodice and peplum. The sleeveless dress has straps that hold up the fitted bodice and a straight skirt with a back kick-pleat. It fastens with a metal zipper in the side seam and is unlined, except for the scalloped trim. The matching cap sleeve jacket is fitted at the waist, with a small collar and a single hook to fasten it in front. Below the waist, the hip-length peplum is gathered slightly at the waist seam and the rows of scallops create volume, each row backed with silk organza fabric. The fabric is a lightweight cotton blend (probably with silk) that has a slight sheen to it and has small slubs visible in the weave. This chic 1950s dress set is in excellent condition, with no flaws to note. Although this outfit came with a matching fabric belt, the belt fabric has yellowed and is therefore not in great condition; we will, however, include it with the set.
