Pink floral 1950s sleeveless dress and bolero set | XS

1950s Clothing




This pink-on-pink floral print 1950s sleeveless dress and bolero jacket set is a fantasia of mid-century femininity! The dress has a fitted bodice with gathers above the center-pointed underbust seam. Piping trims the waist seam, below a wide panel from ribcage to waist. Small pleats all around create the moderate fullness of the skirt (shown here with a crinoline underneath which is not included). The lightweight, acetate and rayon blend floral fabric has a slight texture to its surface, similar to shantung. The dress fastens with a metal zipper in back, and it is unlined (fabric is double-layered at waist panel only). The matching cropped jacket or bolero has elbow-length sleeves, a pointed collar, and decorative pink buttons at the sides and back of its hem. Hidden behind the front bow are a snap and a hook-and-eye fastener. The jacket is also unlined. This late 1950s dress and jacket are in excellent condition. Labeled a vintage size 13-14, they are approximately a modern size XS; please see the measurements for more details.
