Vintage 1950s dress and jacket by Remarque.Please

This stunning little linen wiggle dress with its short, boxy matching jacket will take you to work - or to a wedding, interview, or meeting - and straight out to play afterwards!
The dress is very fitted, with a square neck and short sleeves, and although it is shown on 5' 7" model, would really suit someone slightly shorter (she shouldn't really be showing quite so much leg!)
The jacket is that lovely square shape so flattering with a fitted dress or skirt, with curved lapels, three pearly buttons and false pocket detail at the waist; but no actual pockets, of course, in case you were tempted to put your hands in them!
The sleeves are elbow length, which I love - especially as it really means, just below elbow length - so summery and always sexy too! The whole is a warm lilac, very easy to wear, and of course the jacket could do duty with many other outfits (especially if, like me, you prefer clothes that sit on your waist).
The only slight drawback, perhaps, is the fabric: much as I love linen, it does crease, and this has been in storage for 50 years or so...my suggestion would be to hang it in the bathroom and take a good, steamy bath - that'll sort it out!
In unworn condition (at least, I couldn't find any signs of it having been worn), this is a stunning little suit, and two really useful separates to boot! Approximate garment measurements: bust, 36 inches/91 cms; waist, 30 inches/75.5 cms; hips, 38 inches/96 cms; length, 36 inches/ 91 cms; best fit, size 10-12-ish.
