1950s Silk Brocade Dress & Bolero Jacket
This set is exceptionally charming and a perfect representation of 50s fashion.
The baby blue silk brocade dazzles with a rose pattern. The dress is designed with a flattering empire line bust and a fitted waist that gently flares into a paneled skirt, lined with white cotton. The bodice features a round neckline graced with a notch detail and an intricate box pleat on the center front, ending with a double pressed bow at the empire line seam. It sports short cap sleeves and a lapped zip closure at the back.
The coordinating cropped bolero jacket features an elbow-length sleeve with a turn up cuff and a revere collar, lined with a soft blue rayon.
Perfect for a stand out mother of the bride/groom/wedding guest outfit or even a vintage bride!
