This fabulous, one of a kind, vintage two piece dress set from the 1950s has one of the coolest novelty prints we've ever seen.

Just like the other popular travel destinations, Miami and Mexico, the West Indies, known back then as the "American Riviera", also had a fashion industry that catered to the tourist trade. And colorful clothing in Caribbean inspired motifs made it back home in the suitcases of many fashionable ladies. A lovely, wearable memory of their tropical vacation.

-Medium weight cotton in tan, pale pink, green, black and touches of periwinkle blue. Abstract print with wrought iron patterns, tiny hearts and flowers, scarves, straw hats, baskets and tropical fruit.
-Sleeveless blouse with modified shawl collar. Green plastic button closures.
-Full circle skirt with matching bias fabric band trimming the hem.
-Green inset waistband with sections of boning front and back to give it support.
-Side metal zipper.
-Label reads "Elverhoj, West Indian Fashions, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands."


Measurements for best fit
Bust 36" (blouse measures 38", but should be worn loosely)
Blouse waist 32"
Skirt Waist 26"
Skirt length 29"


Overall very good condition. There is a repair across the inside collar where the fabric was fraying where it folds. It is a straight line of stitching and doesn't show when wearing. There are small frayed areas on the waistband where the fabric has rubbed against the boning. Not super noticeable and is wearable as is. But could be covered with a belt or a new waistband could added.

The print is still bright and the fabric overall is in excellent condition.


Hand wash,cool water. Hang to dry or dry clean.

Shown with petticoat for display purposes. Sold separately.
