SALE! 'Little Dot's' Power Suit
This product is currently sold out.
A versatile vintage inspired suit with separates that can be worn individually! Includes a strapless top with two detachable strap options (polka dot and plain black), a sarong skirt and a bolero. There is wonderful attention to detail in this design.
Little Dot was a little girl comic book character who came to be in 1949 that LOVED polka dots; polka dotted anything. Here’s what she might wear if she grew up and wore luxurious, head-turning dresses.
Crisp 100% cotton poplin with a hand-printed polka dot print with black dots on a deepish blue red, this set is punctuated with black contrast at the jacket cuffs and collar, inside the petals and at the hip tie. The skirt tie is functional and so can be cinched up or loosened a bit. The jacket has three-quarter sleeves with contrasting collar & cuffs.
The dress has a fully-boned Petal Bust bodice. The “petals” can be worn standing straight up or curling outward.
Wear it with the button-in, sweetheart, polka-dotted halter strap or the black halter strap; you’ll receive both. Or wear it strapless for a cocktail look. The structure insures it will cling and hold its shape.
It will come as THREE PIECES: a separate skirt, a corselette top with a full elastic back- boning in the back- fits like a dream and a clean back view without a zipper, plus the bolero. The detailed back of the corselette without a zipper takes the same amount of time to construct but we like the look of it better with the clean, boned back minus the “plumbing” of a zipper. We’ve found also that the two pieces will fit more precisely because the skirt will naturally settle into your own natural waistline at just the right spot for you. Also you can wear the pieces separately with other pieces in your wardrobe!
