1950s Strawberry Halterneck Two Piece Set Co-Ord
VV Size Bette
Another firm favourite in our collection this is one of the most fun prints we have eve seen in vintage! Fabric is a cotton waffle with prints of wild strawberries and daisies. The top is halterneck with a front button fastening with bright red carved buttons. The top has a thin cotton voile attached to it which acts as a lining for the skirt. The waistband on the skirt has slide hooks and a back zip fastening and the skirt itself is full circle and can take a full petticoat (or several) underneath.
The zip in the skirt has been replaced at some point and now has a nylon zip. Otherwise there are no flaws to note and is in excellent condition, If you would prefer to have the zip changed back to an original vintage metal one, our seamstresses can do this at an additional charge. Please contact us if you require this service.
All vintage clothing measurements are taken with the garment lying flat and doubled. These are then used against our unique sizing system to determine size. We would strongly recommend measuring a garment that currently fits you well and compare, because often there is very little give in vintage fabrics.
