"Deep Twist" Vintage 1950's Blue Silk Foliage Print Dress and Jacket UK 14-16

Made in the most sumptuous silk, in a wonderful palette of blues and greys, and a pattern of soft leaves, this original 1950's dress and jacket set, is the perfect addition for your vintage wardrobe.

The elegant V shaped neckline of the dress, is framed by a twisted knot along the front of the décolletage, that links together both sides of the bodice, and sets off the bust-line with draped panels that join to each side of the waistline.
The silk bodice, boasts sewn pin tucked pleats, that create the illusion of textured silk, while radiating seams from the central bust line.
Her sleeveless cut frames the fitted bodice, and sets off the cinched in waistline, drawn in by the matching silk fabric ties that fasten in a bow to the back of the dress.
Her elegant panelled skirt, creates beautiful contrasting drape to the incredible structure of the bodice.
Her open cut jacket, is set off by small shoulder pads along each shoulder seam and 3/4 length sleeves, with matching sewn pin tucks, to match those along the bodice of the dress.
