Made in Mexico by a skilled artisan with a penchant for resort glamour! This 1950s dress set includes a sleeveless shell with short standing collar, a soft-tailored jacket with 3/4 sleeves & waist pockets, and a matching slim skirt with notched sides to the hem. All three pieces are specially seamed to showcase border prints and geometric patterned stripes, extravagantly trimmed in hand-sewn sequins and glass beads. Additionally there are hidden weights sewn into the hem of the jacket and shell, lending a substantial feel to them and creating more graceful movement. A beautiful late 50s ensemble, all pieces faced in muslin and finished by hand.

Condition Detail
Very fresh and fine, looks just lightly worn, the front of jacket has a faint beige 3-inch long discolor along striped border left of closure at waist, this is barely perceptible when worn and not a major detraction; the skirt's zipper appears to be a replacement; one area of beads at back skirt has been expertly re-sewn to secure beads; some of the sequins are burnished with a beautiful 'antiqued' appeal
