1950s Firework Dress & Jacket Co-Ord Set
Circa Late 1950s
SOOO GOOD! There's nothing like a matching set, and this one is special. Crisp cotton viscose with swirl print in shades of blue, green and white, reminds me of firework explosions.
The dress has simple classic lines with a flattering boat/extended crew neckline and short sleeves. The skirt sits on the natural waist and falls into knife pressed box pleats, with back metal zip and hook fastening. It has the original thread belt loops but no belt.
The matching jacket has a chic revere collar. It is cropped length with long sleeves and bow detailing to the centre, with press stud fastening to the front.
Get the look: Miss Victoria is also wearing a pair of vintage 1980s silver and turquoise earrings.
