Vivavintageclothing Vintage Dress Pink
The fine wool of this raspberry "wiggle" dress from the 1950s is such a vibrant color, and the cut of the dress is so totally va-va-voom, that it reminds me of the character Joan from Mad Men. Add the matching jacket for a demure day at the office, and then take it off for an evening out. The bodice and skirt are both beautifully gathered at the wide waistband with two darts/pleats on each side, top and bottom. The cap sleeves flare out from the shoulder, and the skirt is fitted to the hem, with a small kick pleat. The dress closes with a back metal zipper. The matching cropped jacket is darted in front like the bodice of the dress, and is only a little more boxy, in order to fit over it. It has a front decorative "sash", three-quarter sleeves and closes in back with covered buttons. Bust: 34-36" Waist: 26" Hip: 36-37"
