"Abstract Pink Flora" Vintage 1940's Silk Pink Floral Dress & Jacket UK 14 US 10


Rendered in an abstract floral design in shades of pink and green, set against a black silk base and in a striped pattern, this original 1940's dress and matching jacket is the perfect addition to your seasonal wardrobe. 

The rounded neckline of the dress is accented by a central stylised bow and framed by a simple shoulder line. The short length sleeves boasts soft pleats along along the joining shoulder seam, setting off the fluttered cut. The elegant bodice is accented by a pleated and gathered seam along the bust-line, allowing for the silk to drape in soft pleats along the body to the cinched in waistline, which is set off by tailored darts. The timeless skirt, drapes along the silhouette in a straight-line cut completing this dress in an iconic 1940's silhouette.

The matching jacket, boasts a rounded neckline which draws in along the front with matching silk ties in a simple bow. The simple shoulder line sets off the full length sleeves, which frame the elegant box cut of the jacket.
