♛The Details

Adorable late 1940s sundress ensemble! Crisp white cotton pique paired with soft cotton in tones of chambray blue and berry pink.

Cropped bolero jacket coordinates perfectly.

Closes with back metal zipper.

Designer label is Margo Walters.

Shown in some images with a light crinoline to display the fullness of the skirt, not included.

All accessories (belts, jewelry, crinolines, pins, etc.) are for style inspiration only unless indicated.

♛The Condition

Good vintage shape, displays beautifully as you can see. This set has some small flaws that I don't feel detract from its beauty; I would keep it if it fit me. Price is adjusted to reflect the flaws. Just above the hem on the front skirt, there are three faint tan spots, one the size of a pea and the other the size of beans. The back lower skirt has four very faint spots, one the size of a dime, and the other three about the size of BBs. The back bodice has a freckle of rust, and there are two more small rust spots at the very edge of the back bodice at the side seam. The bolero is in excellent shape; there are small buttonholes on each side of the lapel that may have once had strips of fabric to tie it closed (guessing; to match the shoulder ties on dress). This dress set has been carefully hand-washed, and it's bright and clean -- the white is very bright! It's pressed and ready to wear.

Frequently asked questions about jumblelaya

Sorry, each garment in our shop is authentic vintage, dating from between 20 to 80 years old. We generally only have the one piece shown. We do not sew these items ourselves.

If you love it and it fits, consider buying it, since it's unlikely you'll find it again easily.
If it's older than, say, 1964 OR if you feel it fits our shop's aesthetic, absolutely! We pay fairly, generally 1/3 of retail, sometimes even more. Shoot us a note or set up an appointment to sell if you are in the Portland, OR metroplex!
Sure do! Convo us for an info sheet about it.
We do not have a brick-and-mortar shop, but we do have a private studio located on the banks of the Columbia River, directly across the river from Portland, OR. We offer LIMITED appointments currently, due to time constraints. But if you are serious about a piece or pieces you see, let us know and we'll set something up. Shop inventory is generally not kept in the studio, so you'll need to let us know ahead of time which garments you'd like to see in person.
