Vintage 1950s summer skirt & top UNUSED Epatra miracle sailcloth WELGRUME UK 8


A lady's vintage 1950s two-piece summer outfit by Welgrume.

As you can see, it has never been worn - it was unsold shop stock from the early-to-mid 1950s, and has been in storage at the shop for over half a century.

It still has its original shop tags attached.

The price was £3.19.11d (three pounds, nineteen shillings and elevenpence).

Made of Epatra Miracle Sailcloth with Quintafix.

As you can see from the tags, this "easy care", washable, durable, crease resisting, minimum iron fabric, was a great selling point - the height of modernity.

The outfit is beautifully designed, with simple but flattering lines.

The square neck, sleeveless top contrasts well with the skirt.

Big white buttons and white top stitching add charm and distinction, without being "dressy".

Unlined

The fitted top has a stylish square neck, and is sleeveless, with button front.

The skirt has a very nice 1950s "Rockabilly" look.

Two enormous front pockets.

Zip fastening, with button on the waistband.

Size: Waist 24 inches - this is the MAXIMUM waist - if your waist is 25 inches, this skirt will not fit you.
Bust 34 inches approx
This is roughly equivalent to a modern UK size 8.
 
Please check the measurements, to make sure this is right for you.
Length of top (shoulder to hem)........ 21 inches
Length of skirt (waist to hem)........... 29 inches
This outfit was made long before the days of sewn-in garment care labels.
Please treat as hand wash only, to be on the safe side.
The washing advice on the card tag is very basic: "Wash separately, in good quality soap".

Condition:

 
This garment is unworn, and in absolutely superb condition.
It is unsold shop stock, over half a century old.
It still has its original shop tags attached.
The outfit has been properly stored, and as you can see, it is in beautiful condition.
But in view of its age, it should be hand-washed before use, and treated gently.
