Original 1950s Vintage Floral Print Blue White And Green Dress And Bolero Set
This beautiful dress and bolero set was made in the 1950s from cotton. The set has a pretty and vibrant floral pattern and would be perfect for a summers day. The dress is sleeveless with a square neckline and pleated skirt. The bolero jacket has short sleeves and is made from the same fabric as the dress.
Bust: 36” with a small amount of additional cup room.
This dress is in good condition, however there is a small frey near the side closure, being hand made there is a long side closure made up of various press studs and hooks and eyes.
This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.
They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:
1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits
2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)
They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.
We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
