Back in the mid to late Sixties, while all the Mod stuff was going on, women with more traditional tastes wore beautiful frocks like this one. Many day dresses were still true to the history of elegant styling, lovely fabrics and excellent tailoring. This one is by ALGO, a mid- to higher-priced line of dresses that originated in the U.S. and also became popular in Canada.
For example, this fabric is some kind of a rayon blend with alternating shadow stripes of nubby weave and satiny sheen. The color is not for me and it’s also too large, but I couldn’t pass it up because it’s such a lovely example of the timeless side of 1960’s style. Probably next Spring it will go on eBay, but I do have other dresses I love from that era.
I’ve still got more to catch you up on, and the next ones are a little more seasonal . . . . .
