Vintage Late 1930s Polka Dot Peplum Suit

Raleigh Vintage

This stunning late 1940s two piece suit is made from dark brown rayon with white polka dots.   The top has puff sleeves and a nipped waist that flows into a peplum front with a tie bow accent in the front.  The eight gore skirt has a very subtle A-line silhouette (not a full swing skirt) with a side button closure.  Simply adorable!
