"Emerald City" Vintage 1950's Emerald Green Brocade Dress & Jacket UK 8

Made in the most beautiful emerald green brocade in a floral pattern, this original 1950's dress and jacket set is the perfect addition to your vintage wardrobe.

The high mandarin collar of the jacket is framed by 3/4 length sleeves and a cropped length. Her mock button down front, matches the button down front of the dress, creating an eye catching and elegant line.

The straight neckline of the dress is framed by simple shoulder straps and a fitted bodice. Her nipped in waistline is set off by a flowing panelled demi-circle skirt, photographed here with a medium petticoat. Her statement mock button fastenings down the length of the dress match those of the jacket, adding to the beautiful tailoring of this piece.

Enjoy wearing this delightful duo with your favourite gold accessories and court shoes. Alternatively wear them separately to add versatility to your wardrobe.
