Vintage 1950s Satin Oriental Motif 2 Piece Dress
This elegant vintage evening ensemble in superb condition features a wrap-around circle skirt and butterfly-sleeved blouse with elastic at the waist. It can be worn by anyone from about a size 2 to 6, because the fit is adjustable. The shimmering fabric drapes beautifully and is so skillfully woven that the red on black floral pattern reverses in such detail you could practically wear the skirt either way. A "dry clean only" tag is present, but I've found no marks to identify manufacturer, country of origin, specific size or fabrication. Probable dating would be 1950s. It was already vintage when I acquired it while living in London during the early 1980s. I'm regretfully letting it go because there are so few dress-up occasions in New Mexico. *sigh*

If you choose this wonderful outfit, be sure to check out our vintage and antique evening bags; we have several Retro black purses that would be stunning with it and special pricing can be worked out, whenever you want more than one item.
