50s/60s Vintage Novelty Print Sundress
50s/60s Vintage Novelty Print SundressVintage cotton novelty print sundress or frock from the 50s/60s, possibly later. This dress has me a bit perplexed as to when it was actually made. The design suggests 50s, and the the company was around at that time, however it is possible it is a retro 80s or 90s dress in the 50s style. While the dress has a label, I cannot find any information on the company except that they made frocks and house dresses, and that they were sued by Hearst Magazine in the 50s for patent infringement. With that in mind, this is a lovely vintage sundress made in a very cool atomic design cotton fabric. This fit and flare dress has a square bodice with a double ruffle around the top. The dress has vertical bust darts/tucks and wide non-adjustable shoulder straps. The full skirt is pleated. The dress buttons on the side and has side belt loops. The printed pattern on this dress is adorable with alternating rows of abstract florals in off white, brown, rust, gray, and black. This dress was photographed with a crinoline which is not included.
