This one-of-a-kind vintage 1960s hand-embroidered wiggle dress with matching bolero is such a sophisticated and chic look— it absolutely looks like something Jackie Kennedy would have worn in the early 1960s. It appears to have been custom made, and the craftsmanship is so evident. The fit of the dress is just phenomenal, with a bateau neckline, and a wrap effect on the bodice under the bust, artfully pleated and draped to create an ultra-flattering hourglass shape. It's fitted through the bodice and skirt. Very thoughtfully constructed, there is a kick pleat at the back for ease of movement. It is hand embroidered all over with a tonal pinwheel motif. The bolero has a fitted shape, with the embroidery motif extending into diamond-shapes at the graphic hemline. There is a single snap closure at the neck. I love that the bolero feels like an extension of the dress when it's worn, but the dress is also flawless on its own— it's really two distinct looks in one. The dress has a piece of lining at the front skirt to prevent sheerness, and closes with a hidden zip + hook closure.

The Vintage Victorian-Revival Bell Drop Earrings pictured are also available

Great vintage condition. There was a minor repair made to the bolero and there is some faint discoloration at one spot of the interior, but no issues are visible when worn. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email shop@verybreezy.com for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
