Lemon Meringue 1950s Cotton Halter Dress and Bolero


Get ready for heads to turns in the sunshine in this incredible 1950s halter dress and bolero set! The dream dress over a swimsuit on your way to the beach with a broad brim sun hat, this little lady in lightweight cotton is simply timeless. Constructed with a tiered voluminous skirt with alternating panels in yellow cotton and off white broderie anglaise, together with a fitted yellow bodice under a contrasting bolero. A well fitted waist for that flattering nipped look, is well defined by an original metal centre back seam, and the feature ruching on the bodice is extremely flattering to the bustline.
