50s Halter Dress & Bolero Set - sm

SKU: 00499-002

Vintage 1950s kelly green and cream halter sundress with polka dot circle skirt and matching bolero jacket. Just heavenly. Linen bodice and jacket are unlined and cool, but constructed so well you may not even need a bra -- our model is not wearing one. Side boning keeps it in place. Halter strap, sweetheart neckline and princess seams flatter your figure. Skirt has a soft, solid cream underlayer and a crisp, polka-dotted organdie over skirt with horse hair trim to give it shape. Note that the skirt is flat across the front for a slim silhouette. Closes with a metal Crown back zip and top hook& eye. Soft, unlined jacket has a pointed collar and faux pocket flaps. No closure. This set is not only beautiful and nicely made, it's extremely comfortable. Twirl away! But hurry because I may change my mind and keep this one.

We show the dress with a crinoline (not included) on the model and without on Cecelia the Dress Form.
