I absolutely love the flattering drape of this fitted dress! The fabric is a synthetic blend of some type, probably containing nylon.
During the late ’50’s and early ’60’s the lean sheath styles were very alluring, yet proper. That seems, to me, to be one of the best fashion qualities of lots of the true vintage styles.
This one goes from Spring, with a light jacket or sweater, right into Summer. The combination of green and blue was very popular in the early 1960’s for a year or two – so this one may come from that time.
So, a ladylike frock that can be worn almost anywhere – simple style and classic lines. It would look nice with white shoes. Though the standard rule was “No white until after Memorial Day in the U.S. (last of May) and not after Labor Day (first Monday in September), those rules don’t apply anymore so wear your white shoes whenever you like!
I’m not sure, but this dress might have come from Canada. Sometimes, with a closet the size of mine, you just never know . . . . . . . . .
