40s 50s Vintage Pink Satin Cropped Bolero Jacket Embellished M
This vintage 1940s to 1950s cropped bolero jacket is absolutely gorgeous, and will elevate a simple dress or top to a whole new level! Curving shawl collar, padded shoulders long sleeves with self fabric buttons and buttonholes that actually work. Bodice front has deep tucks at the shoulders to allow for the bust. Bodice front is lavishly embellished with swirling soutache braid and dozens of rhinestones and metal studs.
No size label. Bust measurement was taken from side seam to side seam, with the bolero laid flat and front bottom overlapping about 2". Bust is somewhat flexible, given the design. I wear a modern size 12, and find the shoulders uncomfortably tight, and the front a bit more open than ideal.
Bridal weight satin in a luscious rosy pink.
Very good. The only thing that keeps it from being excellent is a faint ring around the left underarm. It's a circular line, challenging to see except from certain angles. Iit comes across as a slight dulling of the pink color on the outside and has a faint bluish tinge from the back of the fabric. Nothing seen under the right arm.
