Approximately a size Medium.
1940s/50s black and white linen dress and jacket set, with a matching belt. The jacket has padded shoulders and short sleeves. The front has covered buttons. Unlined. It has cropped fit. The dress has a black bodice. It is sleeveless, with an angled arm hole. It has a V-neck with a collar. Side zipper closure. The dress is unlined. It has a matching polka dot covered belt.
In fair to good condition. This set has no holes. It has some yellowing under the arms on the jacket, as well as on the tops of the sleeves. The skirt has some yellowing, and the zipper has some very faint black color bleeding. We soaked this dress -- and it is 85% improved from where it started! Longer exposure to sunlight would probably help to lighten the yellowing even more.
