"Delphinium Blue Blossoms" Vintage 1950's Delphinium Blue Floral Skirt & Jacket Set UK 6 US 2


Rendered in a truly iconic 1950's New Look silhouette, this delphinium blue skirt and jacket set with a floral pattern of blossoms in black and white, is the perfect piece for your seasonal wardrobe.

The V shaped neckline of the jacket is framed by a simple shoulder line. The 3/4 length raglan sleeves are accented by small gathers along the elbow area allowing for ease of movement. The fitted cut of the jacket is set off by tailored darts and central gunmetal silver ornate button fastenings. The cinched in waistline sets off the elegant line which sits perfectly above the skirt.

The matching skirt boasts a simple waistband, with a side button fastening. The box pleats radiate from below the waist-band and drape into the skirt, which has been photographed here with a medium petticoat for added volume, completing this ensemble in an iconic 1950's New Look Silhouette.
