The was no such thing in the 1950s as a dress that did not fit perfectly. Clothes, even the simplest everyday ones, were made to measure from fabrics bought at the market or from tailors. If by chance you bought a ready-made dress, you still took it to the seamstress to have it adjusted. All dresses from this period have darts, hems and trimmings. This wool-blend dress from the end of the decade is a typical example of what dressing was like in those days: a simple but perfect model made from a good quality fabric cut and sewn in an impeccable manner. The thin velvet strap and petticoat help to enhance the figure by emphasising the waistline The striped pattern in melange shades of brown makes it perfect for autumn days. Pair it with a pretty tote bag and chunky heeled Mary Jane shoes to complete the Dark Academia look.
