Vintage 1950s Gingham Dress With Jacket / 50s Gloria Swanson Original Dress With Pockets

Yes, THAT Gloria Swanson. She had a clothing line from 1951 to 1981. This is a perfectly perfect little summer sundress in brown and white gingham check with a matching little jacket from the very early 1950s. The dress is wiggle shape with a sweetheart neckline, no sleeves, side metal zipper and wonderful deep hip pockets embellished with soutache and diamantes. Thread loops for a belt but no belt. The jacket has short dolman cuffed sleeves, four matching fabric covered buttons, and more of that soutache and diamante trim round the collar. The front portion of the jacket's bodice is lined in solid brown but the back is unlined. There are little shoulder pads. Cotton, I believe and small-ish sized. Label reads: Gloria Swanson Original. Gosh, this is so cute!

Excellent near mint vintage condition.
