50s Halter Dress & Bolero Set - sm

SKU: 00499-002

Vintage 1950s kelly green and cream halter sundress with polka dot circle skirt and matching bolero jacket.

  • Linen bodice and jacket are unlined and cool, but constructed so well you may not even need a bra -- our model is not wearing one.
  • Side boning keeps everything in place.
  • Halter strap, sweetheart neckline and princess seams flatter your figure.
  • Skirt has a soft, solid cream underlayer and a crisp, polka-dotted organdy over skirt with horse hair trim to give it shape. Note that the skirt is flat across the front for a slim silhouette.
  • Closes with a metal back zip and top hook& eye.
  • Soft, unlined jacket has a pointed collar and faux pocket flaps. No closure.
This set is not only beautiful and nicely made, it's extremely comfortable. We show the dress with a crinoline (not included) on the model and without on Cecelia the Dress Form.
