Early 1950s inspired velvet cocktail dress

This delightful early 1950s inspired red velvet cocktail dress, slightly gathered at shoulders and with v-neckline both at the front and back and wide attached cummerbund belt, full skirt and 3/4 length sleeves with darts at elbows is a classic example of the dresses of the era. Zip closure at the back.

This lovely late 1950s style suit in bright sea green wool/cashmere blend is a perfect example of the era with the cropped jacket’s large peter pan collar and fabric covered buttons and the full skirt with asymmetrical pleats.
