Vintage 1950s Navy and White Gingham Sundress and Peplum Jacket

What a classic early 50s dress and jacket set!  The dress is a lightweight cotton with a navy and white gingham check. It has a simple silhouette with a very subtle A-line skirt and side metal zipper.  The jacket is a navy rayon blend (feels like linen).  It has a great peplum hem with two patch pockets and gingham bow trim.  There are shoulder pads in the jacket.  Both pieces are unlined.  Original belt included.  

 

DETAILS

Label:  Toni Hunt (original tags still attached)

Best fits: S (see measurements)

Circa:  1940s

Fabric:  Rayon

Condition:  Overall excellent.  The dress has never been worn.  We have not laundered this dress to maintain the 'new' nature of the dress (crisp cotton, etc.).  There is a very faint bit of storage dust on the bottom of the skirt; this will come out with the first cleaning.
