Helen of California

1950s Lace Inset Cotton Summer Dress & Shrug Set


This Helen of California summer dress set dates to the early 1950s. It was made from light slate gray imported cotton with eyelet, lace detailing and light beige insets. It comes with the matching one sleeve shrug that ties at the left shoulder. It features ruching at the bust, and a metal Talon zipper up the back.

This set is in very good condition with some imperfections to note: it is missing its original belt, has one 3mm x 3mm light brown stain on the back of the skirt, a repair done to a tear on the back hem, and three small tears on the edge of the shrug. These flaws have all been factored into the price and photographed, so please review the photos for a full understanding of its condition. It is clean and ready to wear.
