60s/70s Blue Dress & Jacket Set - med

SKU: 00497-034

Sleeveless shift dress and short-sleeve hip-length jacket set from the late 1960s or early 70s.

  • Color is a bright, deep cyan blue with white ginkgo leaf abstract botanical print.
  • Fabric is a cool but substantial cotton with rich texture.
  • Both pieces are unlined.
  • Dress closes with a metal back zip and top hook&eye. Jacket has three big plastic buttons.
As with all of Dorothy E.'s clothing, this set is well-made, with attention to detail. We suspect it was one of her later projects, as the cut is slightly larger, and the dress features a marvelous, hand-made zipper pull to make getting in and out easier. 

The color was tough to capture accurately, and no amount of tinkering resulted in a perfect representation. This dress suit is a very happy bright blue with the slightest hint of green -- it's not quite turquoise or teal, but rather a deep cyan.

Labels: none - almost certainly home sewn by Dorothy E.

Fiber/Care: unmarked, cotton or cotton-rich blend, washable

Condition: looks great, but there are some slight glitches. the interior underarms show slight staining (may lift with targeted treatment, but inconspicuous regardless). there are a few very tiny scattered spots (see photo). there are a few tiny areas where the textured fabric shows signs of age (see photo). priced accordingly.

*This dress suit is freshly laundered and ready to wear.*
