50s 2 PIECE FLORAL NYLON SUN DRESS WITH SCULPTED BUST AND MATCHING BOLERO - M-L
Lovely little 2 piece 50s ensemble. Soft yellowy cream colour with a dusky floral print in purple, blue, white and grey. Dress has thin shoulder straps and a pretty spectacular gathered/ruched sweetheart bust with fitted underbust. Fitted waist and full flowing skirt. Comes with a matching cropped bolero jacket which fastens with a hook and eye in front. Light semi sheer chiffony nylon fabric. No labels, but traces of a makers tag cut out to the neck of the bolero so commercially made.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a Medium to a Large, I would estimate a large UK12 or a small UK14. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Fit on model: clipped to fit
Top of bust to underbust: 6.5"
Top of bust to waist: 11.5"
Length from top of bust to hem: 38.5"
Skirt length: 27"
(There is a 0.7" hem on this)
Very good condition. Tiny bit of straining to the front of one of the straps where it attaches to the bodice. The hook and eye fastener to the bolero has most likely been added by a previous owner, I think the jacket would have originally been open cut.
