50s 60s Suzy Perette Vintage PINK Polka Dot Silk Dress S/XS
This vintage late 1950s to early 1960s dress is adorable - pink and polka dots! You can wear it as a dress or pair the top with white capris or pencil skirt. Pleated skirt is attached to a fitted camisole-type bodice. A fitted but more structured “popover” top has short sleeves, a banded boatneck collar, and shallow but functional flap pockets at the bottom.

Lightweight slightly slubbed silk in vibrant carnation pink with white polka dots. The underbodice is acetate, also pink – the overblouse top is lined with the same acetate.

The dress has a metal zipper down the back, and the top has its own back metal zipper.
The under-camisole has some mild seam stress at the darts and minor discoloration at the shoulders, but since it’s not designed to be seen, not an issue. There is some smudgy discoloration on the inner neckline of the back of the overblouse on the wearer's left, along with a small stain at the corner of the label - see closeup. None of this is seen during wear. I don't see any other issues.
