60s Shift Dress & Sweater Set in Aqua Blue - sm

SKU: 00543-001

Early 1960s dress and sweater set in a medium aqua blue.

  • Unlined dress has banded neckline, princess seams, bust darts, gusseted short kimono-cut sleeves.
  • Self-fabric belt cinches the no-seam waist.
  • Dress closes at back with a nylon Talon zipper and top hook&eye.
  • Long-sleeve, swing-style cardigan sweater is knit from a slightly fuzzy, ultra-soft wool yarn that is almost certainly cashmere, and lined (except in the sleeves) with silk chiffon.
  • Cardigan is trimmed at neck, open placket, and ribbed hem with the dress material. Closes with a single, hidden hook&eye at the neck. 

From my personal collection. True color was difficult to capture, but is best described as a bright, medium, turquoise blue. Ever so slightly aqua. A very pretty color.
