New Vintage Dress And Jacket

In October last year I bought a new vintage dress suit. Thought it might be time to show it off now - half a year later... Hehe... But I actually haven't been able to wear it until recently, when the weather has finally been warm enough for it. But here it is!  It's from the 40s, and I got it at Dalena Vintage's lovely Etsy shop!




The dress and the jacket are made of the same fabric - a soft, light cotton. The top of the dress is folded over to the outside to create a bit of draping. The skirt is a bit gathered in the back.







And here is the matching jacket! It has a fitted waist, a peplum, and a little pleated bustle in the back. The sleeves have cuffs, and although I have them down in these pictures, I later folded them up. I like both looks though. For some reason the color of the two top pictures changed when I put them on my blog. The bottom photo shows off the real color of the fabric though. Damn you Blogger!!!
