Introducing an absolutely GORGEOUS, vintage 1950’s, patio dress. This lil beauty is pulling out all the stops! Made of a light red, semi-silky synthetic fabric, it has that coveted, mid century, western swing dress silhouette; with a full gathered skirt, a breezy bodice, a v-neck with pointy collars, and oodles & oodles & oodles of metallic-silver and pink highlighted ric rac trim.
A true CLASSIC!
This dress is in excellent vintage condition. No major flaws found besides some typical vintage wear, but it looks very smart! There is no maker’s tag present, so it may have been custom made, but if so, it was obviously done by a professional. This dress slips over the head, has an elastic waist, and no zipper or other means of closure. It is unlined.
PLEASE NOTE-> This dress is being shown modeled with a crinoline to fill out the skirt, which was intended with this silhouette. The crinoline is not included.
The silver belt, seen in the photos, is also not included.
Sizewise, it is shown being modeled on a junior size, but it could also be worn by a very petite, XS adult. So please see the measurements below. They were all taken with the garment laying flat, seam to seam, and have already been doubled where necessary. Please compare them to a similar garment of your own. There is not much stretch to the actual fabric, but the waist is elastic for some give and the skirt is very full and gathered.
For reference, the lovely Jazzy is somewhere between a US Girl’s Size 12 and an Adult XS. She is 5′ tall.
Shoulders->14.5″ (36.83 cm)
Bust->32″ (81.28 cm)
Waist, unstretched – stretched comfortably->18″-22″ ( 45.72 cm – 55.88 cm)
Entire length->39″ (99.06 cm)
Such a sassy little piece of herstory. These authentic, 1950’s patio dresses only get harder and harder to find. So if you love it, don’t let it do-si-do away!
