Bombshell 1950s Yellow Dress & Jacket w Pink Accents
This is an absolute beauty of an outfit whose color combination and fit make it a standout. Both pieces are made out a felted wool dyed to a sunny egg yolk yellow. The dress is fitted to the extreme with charming little embellishments made of brilliant pink that wind over the neckline and also up one side of the skirt. The little jacket is equally fitted and zipped up to close and once zipped hugs the body. The detailing on this set is the true delight. Those pink details are made of fabric and embroidered bits and create floral vines that trail over the elaborate collar. At the side where they creep up the leg there is a pleated panel there that allows you to walk. The cuffs and collars are elaborate cut outs of fabric that have been top seamed to look like leafs and hand applied. More of these wrap around the waist of the jacket. Really a remarkable and unusual piece and in person - even better. Excellent overall condition with one small item to note below.
Fully lined in a yellow silky rayon and both pieces closes with painted metal zippers - at the back of the dress and front of the jacket. The hem of the inner dress is raw and looks to have been cut all the way around.
Note that the jacket would not close properly on the mannequin. It does do up all the way. I photoed it done up and lying flat so you can see
