True Vintage 1950s Dress with Matching Bolero



Fashioned in cotton material, featuring fabulous bold stripe in olive and deep red, painted with gold.

Bodice is fitted, has shoulder straps and fastens at side with metal zip. Skirt has pleats. It has a matching bodice that fastens at front with button.


This dress is in very good condition. I think the dress may have been taken in at some point as interior centre back seam stitching is a different colour. There are two patches to bolero underarm (see photos). There is a smudge of gold paint to skirt but I believe this is a minor fabric printing anomaly rather than damage.
