Vintage 1950's Hot Pink Brocade Cocktail Dress with Matching Jacket XS

This is a beautiful Vintage dress from the 1950's. It is a hot pink cocktail dress - sleeveless with a fitted waist and metal zipper at the back. It has a little bow detail at the front of the waist. Full, flirty skirt. The dress comes with a matching jacket that hooks to close at the center neck area in front. Short sleeves on the jacket. The jacket has a beautiful ivory satin lining.

I purchased this dress/jacket ensemble from an estate sale in Providence, Rhode Island. The house was up for sale and it was a "house lost in time". NOTHING had changed in the house since the 1960's. The woman even had rotary telephones, still in use. This dress came out of the closet in the master bedroom, where it hung since the 1960's. The bedroom had velvet flocked wallpaper, 1960's curtains, bedspread - all untouched all these years. The woman's husband died many years ago and she closed the door to the bedroom and never moved a thing. It was really something to see! I would love for this dress to go to a good home, with the story to go with it.
