Staying in the spirit – looking back on the Christmas Dance (or ahead to the Valentine’s Day Dance)! I just love this little circle skirt dress from the 1940’s – early 1950’s with sequins on the bodice.
Probably custom-tailored, with little cap sleeves and a skirt meant to swing. Just right for dancing.
This is one of my favorite colors – good any season, but especially right when everything is white and gray outside. Velveteen is also such a feel-good fabric. You can’t beat rayon for drape, but velvet, silk, nylon and poly have their own lovely ways.
Zip up the back, waist-hugging style – there’s nothing too remarkable about the tailoring but it’s unmistakably TRUE VINTAGE, and only the real thing that has that “look”. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
