"Chartreuse & Teal" Vintage 1950's Chartreuse & Teal Susan Small Dress & Bolero UK 8
Made in the softest of cottons, in a palette of chartreuse green and deep aqua teal, in a striped alternation abstract pattern, this original 1950's Susan Small dress and bolero set, is the perfect addition for your vintage wardrobe.
The elegant soft V shaped neckline of the dress, is framed by thin cotton shoulder straps and a fitted bodice.
Her cinched in waistline is accented by a full skirt, set off by small box pleats beneath the waistband, creating elegant drape to the skirt-line, photographed here with a medium petticoat, for added volume.
Her matching bolero, made in a textured cotton, boasts a deep V shaped neckline, and short length sleeves. Her fitted cut is set off by button and loop fastenings, and a cinched in waistline, that sits perfectly above the matching dress.
