Start a conversation about, and in, this semi-conversational print 2-pc. set!
Conversation prints hit the end of their peak around the time this dress set came into existence. Post-war society felt optimistic and happy coming out of WWII, and this was reflected in fashions of the day, featuring colorful prints with fun, conversation-inducing prints like the one seen here. What is it? A linear array of flower-like items at the center of atomic-looking medallions, in black, light pink and bright pink, on a white ground. Both pieces are unlined, and made of a light-to-medium weight cotton weave fabric. The dress is sleeveless, sheath silhouette, with fitted bodice and skirt. The neckline of dress has a special, reticulated (cut-out) design that's so unique, I'm not sure I've ever seen anything quite like it before! Dress has a hidden pocket at right side hip, and metal zipper closure at left side seam. The short sleeve, matching fabric jacket features rounded lapel collar, up-turned cuffs, and deep red button, center front closure. But, one of the most charming details is the little scallop-edge style peplum that juts from the waist of the jacket! Only label reads 'Greentree'. The overall condition is excellent, with little to no signs of wear and the only flaw being sun damage (fading) to right shoulder and sleeve of jacket. Please see photographs for full details.
