Vintage Late 1930s Polka Dot Peplum Suit

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!
