TRUE VINTAGE COTTON CANDY CONFECTION OF A FROCK - EARLY 1960'S

Time for a new color.  This dress is spun sugar pink, with bubblegum, white and (dare I say it – puce).  That’s an awful name for a color, but mixed with these others it is very effective.

There’s no tag remaining, so I don’t know for certain that this dress was commercially-made but it certainly looks as though it was.  The bodice is lined and the belt would have required some exceptional skill to make at home.

This type of fabric was called “whipped cream”, I think.  A type of synthetic, but I can’t say which.  It has unusual body that gives it a form of its own.  The tie belt and blousey effect create a flattering fit.

Back zipper – simple style, but very much a stand-out.  It makes me think of an ice cream social in the summer . . . . .
