Great little early 50s 3 piece set by Brilkie. Lovely red, grey and lime green paisley print with soft floral accents. Fitted bodice with red contrast bust folds and thin button on straps. Fitted waist with a matching belt. Full skirt with patch pockets with matching red trims to the top. Back metal zipper to fasten. Matching cropped / waist length bolero jacket with red buttons, collared neck and small chest patch pockets. Short sleeves. Very sweet little outfit, great for summer, but also transitions really well into autumn.

Good condition. Presents very nicely: some small discreet things to note:
-Boning to the front of the bust has been removed, it's intact to the back of the bodice. Would be easy enough to slot new bones in, but it's perfectly wearable as is.
-One strap has been repaired with a small seam straight across it and the other has some tiny little specks on the shoulder.
-Zipper is an original metal zip but has been resewn in, this is nothing noticeable at all when worn. -Lining shows some faint yellowing, this is very slight and obviously can't be seen when worn.
