Haven’t found a “Nancy Frock” in quite a while so I’m very happy with this find. A house-dress, day-dress combo. The label says you can “wear it anywhere” – a smart style so typical of lower-priced dresses of that era. Proudly “made in the U.S.A.”. Such an old, iconic brand name label.
This poly shirtwaist style has an overall paisley print – so 1960’s. Although it doesn’t show well in the photo, the dyed-to-match buttons are sculpted and there is a little neck-tie beneath the collar, which dresses it up a bit. I love it that this dress also is in virtually perfect condition. The only flaw I see is the missing original belt.
Also, the original owner had written on the label “New Long” but I’m not about to try to remove that – it’s part of the story that she probably intended to have it altered (or do it herself). Looks like she never got around to it, so this garment may be new and unworn. Fab.
When it rains, it pours. So, more coming your way tomorrow . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
