Vintage 1950s Brown Nubby Plaid Wool Pencil Skirt SZ S

This later 1950s brown and white plaid skirt has multicolored slubs in the nubby weave. The horizontal standing welt hip pockets give it a bucket shape at the top. The slim shape has a center back kick pleat vent. The belt matches , with a toned brass buckle. This has a CB metal zipper to close. It is partially lined across the back. Since the cross grain is off across the back, I'd say it was home sewn.

1960s Green & White Tapestry Over Dress by Bergdorf Goodman SZ M/L

This light avocado and white tapestry over dress has many elements of ethnic style. The scoop neck, the Empire waist, the ribbon trim at the fronts and hems plus the covered button and rouleau closure at the bust. This is a Bergdorf's fashion version from the 1960s, though. And the bodice is lined blue crepe to match the beautiful ribbon. The skirt is lined in a lighter blue Silesia type weave. This does hang open from the bust to the hem. Wouldn't this look fantastic over white cigarette pants?

1940s Pink and Grey Rayon Striped Vintage Jacket SZ L Tall

This 1940s summer weight jacket is a great grey and pink shadow stripe rayon. The stripes are handled well- mitered on the collar points, bias on the cuffs and mitered bias on the large, square patch pockets. The waist has tucks to shape it in and there are large shoulder pads. The buttons are a dark mother of pearl and the belt is a coordinating contrast grey. This is unlined. It is long waisted for our mannequin, and due to the label, I'd say sized for a taller woman.

Early 1950s Vintage Pale Rose Pink Wool Dressmaker Jacket SZ S

This sweet jacket has lots of dressmaker touches: curved pockets, bound buttonholes, notched front edge, even wired collar points for shaping.
