SO RARE! FABULOUS EARLY 1950’S DRESS

DSC00659This 2 – piece dress is a super-rare find and in fabulous condition!  Handmade in the early 1950’s, the yarn is a very glossy, heavy type and the overall style makes it a dressy garment.  I’m amazed at the condition of an item like this after more than 60 years!

Some woman did her needlework magic in order to have a frock that was the current style, in a color and pattern that suited her.  Such a pretty soft pink, it is perfect for cocktails.

I’ve only had one of these so far, but my incredible good fortune lets me understand the details – a friend’s mother gave me one very similar that she had knitted for herself in 1952.  It was also very carefully conserved.  Thank you, Rosalie!
