Vintage late 1940s blue gingham dress and cropped bolero jacket set. The dress has a flattering wide neckline, a fitted short sleeve bodice with decorative buttons down the front, and a full skirt. The jacket has 3/4 length cuffed sleeves, and an open fit with no closures. There is a metal Talon zipper closure at the side of the dress.
