Perfect Pair | Vintage 1950s Handmade blue gingham Button down Dress with POCKETS and Matching Jacket
A rare vintage 1950s handmade blue button-down (Yes, all the way!) gingham dress with embroidered square pockets and a matching bolero/cropped jacket.
Loving how crisp the material still is (probably a linen mix) and it reminds us of this 1950s adverts with the perfect 50s lady-of-the-home wearing this, an apron and leaning over the oven ;)
And you can wear the matching cropped jacket separately too! Would be great with a white or light yellow tank under, tied at the waist and high-waisted clam diggers!
No. But it was belted to show how it looks when worn with one. Please refer to the details below for exact measurements.
