1950s Vintage Dress Black and White Gingham Pat Perkins Label - Large

  • $59.00

This is a lightweight black and white gingham sleeveless summer vintage dress that dates to the late 1950s.

It features 2 patch pockets and a v-neck bodice that has one of the niftiest design elements I’ve seen in awhile. The V shaped bodice is created by pleating bands of the black and white fabric and edging with strips of nylon lace insertion creating a multi-dimensional effect. Closure is on the left side with a metal zipper.

The dress has been pinned to show proper fit on my dress form and mannequin.

Label:  Pat Perkins

Condition:  Excellent - There are belt loops, but no belt. It has been washed and is ready to wear!

When considering if this dress will fit you, do NOT use the size printed on the label – vintage sizes are MUCH smaller than modern sizes.

*** The last photo shows this dress on my mannequin wearing the dress – one view is of the dress at full length and one shows the dress with the hem pinned up about 5 ½”. I thought it was kind of cute that way and would be easy and inexpensive to do yourself.
