Vintage 1950s cotton patio dress set, a classic set blouse and tiered, full ircle skirt. A very decadent version of a classic with a gorgeous sweetheart bust and wide swaths of embellishment. The blouse has sleek darts through the waist, and a side metal zipper. Narrow white and wider gold rick rack alternate, with a band of white and metallic ribbon through the center. The full skirt is composed of tiered ruffles with three bands of embellishment. The trim provides the perfect crispness, ensuring a structured full sweep. Looks fabulous worn alone, or paired with your favorite crinoline. The skirt closes with a side slit and hooks at waist.

This set is freshly hand laundered and ready to wear. This light blue dye was unstable,and it's clear the top has been washed more than the skirt, as it's a full shade lighter. This doesn't read badly, as you can see in the images. There is also light staining at the underarms. The dye is not entirely consistent in the skirt, with darker lines in the corners of the creases if you stretch the broomstick out to examine it. It is still sturdy and beautiful, one of the best tops I've seen in these sets.
