Brown black stripe cotton 1950s dress full skirt jacket S

1950s Clothing



This 1950s dress with full skirt and matching bolero jacket by Jonathan Logan makes great use of striped brown and black cotton fabric, with the pattern turned vertically, horizontally, and diagonally in different sections! The sleeveless bodice has vertical stripes, but with horizontally striped panels set into each side. The extra full skirt is gathered at the waist seam, and combines vertical stripes at front and back with diagonal stripes at each side. The skirt has slit pockets at each side seam—hooray for pockets! The matching short jacket has a fitted waistband below the slightly blouson bodice. The tapered sleeves are made all-in-one piece with the bodice. The three-quarter-length sleeves have fitted, buttoned cuffs gathering the sleeve fabric at the hems. Shiny plastic buttons fasten the jacket in front, from the banded collar to the fitted waistband. The jacket has medium-sized shoulder pads. Both the dress and jacket are unlined. The lightweight striped cotton has a faintly ribbed texture. Shown here with a very full crinoline underneath (not included), the dress has a nearly full circle skirt. Hidden well in the folds of the skirt fabric is one small, patched hole--patched by me, and I think I did a pretty nice job. (See close-up photo—it should be sturdy, since I stitched over it on both sides.) In very good condition, this true vintage 1950s cotton dress and jacket set has no other issues to note.
