Bold Late 1950s Colorblock Jersey Day Dress in Orange, Beige and Deep Green


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1950s day dress is an absolutely fantastic use of color theory. This smart dress is a soft jersey, with a tri color bodice and solid skirt. This one I had to fiber test - it's a Zefran style acrylic, so probably made around 1958/9. The collar is a rich green, with a chevron of beige below, then a chevron of green, cutting into the rich orange of the bodice. The pale skirt is pleated for a soft drape. The dress closes on the side with a sturdy metal zipper. 


      Bust: 40"-43"
      Waist: 28"
      Hips: 53"
      Length: 41"

      Label: None Present
      Material: Zefran style acrylic jersey
      Condition: Good, as is 

      This dress is freshly hand laundered and ready to wear. Because it is an acrylic, there is some subtle rubbing/pilling to the surface. A number of seam pops have been sewn over the years in a couple different colors, but you won't see these except on close inspection. There's three tiny moth chews on the bodice just above the waist, and six scattered in the skirt. The back of the skirt has some color variation, and subtle lightened areas where someone treated spots lower on the skirt long ago. The dress really does wear beautifully, though, and is priced with flaws in mind.
