    What a charming set!
    I say 1950s, as well.

    Hello! I had exactly this style dress but it was commercially made. It was cotton but just like this. I dated it to late 50s, around 58 or 59, with the help of the granddaughter of the designer who designed for her own company off French designs... she was a couple years behind the couture and her company was out of California. If I can figure out the name, I'll share here. If. lol

    The grand-daughter purchased it for her mother, as a special Mother's Day gift.
