1940s Three Piece Mexican Cotton Set

It is rare to find full sets when you talk vintage sets like this. Time has a way of having the pieces go their separate ways! This three piece combo is not only all together and present but in mint, museum quality. This would have been made for the tourist market in Acapulco and is made to go from beach to market and to cocktails. The skirt wraps and ties and is the perfect length and cut. The top has the cutest buttons I have seen in a long time- they have little notches in the center of their bullet shape and that is where the thread goes. And the halter is backless and amazingly sexy. Take the looser top off and suddenly you are all bombshell vixen curves! A truly wonderful find and in excellent condition
