The blouse is a silky fabric – maybe silk or might be a synthetic of the time – in cafe’ au lait with black polka dots. It’s so pretty here, or with pants or a suit.
The bolero jacket by Fashion Frock is also a favorite. It’s a tweedy brown/black fabric with a black velveteen collar and fills out the ensemble nicely.
The skirt is wonderful! Black velveteen with a big bow behind, between the buttons. It’s also got a hem that dips a bit in the back. Dressed up or down, so many ways to wear it and it’s so cute!
All these pieces are from the Forties or early Fifties. That’s always a favorite era for me, and I so LOVE finding things that I can put together in lots of different ways . . . .
