Sweet Disorder Vintage
1940s Kay Collier Dress Set
Vintage 1940s top and skirt dress set. Fabulous classic 40s style with a high neckline, strong square shoulders and fitted waist. Flirty turn up asymmetrical turn up hem and waist accent trimmed in pumkin orange. Slim fit skirt falls just below the knee with a pleat at the front of the hem for ease. Buttons up the back with shiny brass buttons. Hidden metal side zip in the skirt and hook & eye at the waistband. Fabric feels like a wool crepe, the orange trim is rayon. Label: Kay Collier "Designs For Youth". Excellent condition, no damage to the fabric. There's a faint spot on the back hem of the top (see photo). A little bit of very faint soiling on the top of shoulders, and a very faint mark on the skirt. They're so faint the camera doesn't pick them up. Clean, fresh and ready to wear.
