Just which decade is this dress from? I don’t know – it’s so classic in style, that it could be from either the 1940’s or 1950’s. I’m going to bet on the earlier time, but can’t be sure. Dare I say that it could even be from the ’30’s?!
I am certain that it’s true vintage and I love it to pieces! The back, of course, is open to mid-back and there is a metal zipper on the side. I expect that it was custom-tailored. Just look how well the pattern is matched!
This is a favorite style of mine, and I really responded to the fabric when I discovered it. Love the colors! I also like the fact that the cut of the top is modest without being unnecessarily so. Makes it very easy to wear.
Just right for a beach town, vacationing or a hot summer day anywhere. Put on a big straw hat and just look like one of the tourists . . . . . . .
