This stunning calf length 1950s summer dress and jacket set is from former London department store Bourne & Hollingsworth. Both the dress and jacket are cut from a blue cotton with skinny white stripes. The high-waisted sleeveless dress sports a darted bust area and angular neckline at the front. The back of the dress however has a v-neck which ends with a rather cute metal zip by Swift. The hem ends just below the knee. The matching jacket for this dress creates a classic 1950s silhouette with it's 'pinched-in' waist created by shaped side seams and long waist darts. The front has rounded faux pockets and a notch-less lapel collar. The sleeves are ¾ length as was popular during the 1950s and the front fastens with three large blue iridescent buttons. These pieces look incredible worn together but also look lovely worn individually.
