1940's Gay Gibson Colorful Plaid Linen Cotton Swing Dress & Winged-Sleeve Bolero



With its vibrant linen-cotton plaid and flawless styling, this Gay Gibson designer dress ensemble has the casual elegance the 1940's were known for. The tri-strap bodice with side buttons is very flattering and effortless to wear. The hourglass nipped waistline with full swing skirt is both ladylike and sexy, cut to showcase your natural assets. My favorite part is the matching winged-sleeve back belted bolero vest which is a statement piece in it's own right. For every woman, plaid prints are a fashion must-have. It's a style for all ages, simply because it exudes an undeniably youthful flair, and yet remains incredibly timeless. A gorgeous piece of wearable art. Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:up to 38 inches Bolero Length:20 inches Total Dress Length:48 inches This Gay Gibson designer dress set is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or stains. Perfectly working original side buttons. This ensemble is over 70 years old and is truly stunning.
