Early 1950s Fruit of the Loom Day Dress

$123.00

1950s vintage

approx. size large-large/Xlarge 

shoulder: undefined
bust: 40”
waist: 35”
hips: 50”
bodice length: 17”
total length: 28”

whimsical deco-inspired floral print on a silky lightly structured acetate type blend. Shirred bodice detail, cuffed dolman sleeves. modified a-line skirt with single side seam pocket.

closure: black rhinestone-centered buttons to hip. Cinch with original fabric covered belt.

label: Fruit of the Loom Casuals

condition: very good vintage condition. freshly washed, sturdy, presents beautifully. A few pest-type (?) nibbles noted in front skirt and back bodice. right bodice waist pleat appears to have been taken out and then put back in angled the wrong way. I don't think this would read to the average viewer when worn- could be redone if desired. Barely noteworthy, but, the black features in the print have “fuzzy edges” which may be a tiny bit of dye bleed from laundering, but could also just be from the printing process. See final images.
