Vintage sun dress 1950s swing time Leslie Fay Original

This is a beautiful vintage dress for summer in a sweet blue print. This sun dress is fashioned of a synthetic fiber blend, most likely with some sort of nylon. There is a metal side zip closure. Skirt sweep measures 111" around. Tag reads Leslie Fay Original. Leslie Fay was founded in 1947 by Fred Pomerantz, who had produced dresses for the Women's Army Corps during World War II. The company was named for his daughter and offered department stores substantial profit margins for carrying the company's line of stylishly conservative women's wear. Pomerantz was a colorful figure in the New York garment district; he reportedly had a liking for gambling, and people on the street knew when he was at work because his distinctive Rolls-Royce was parked outside the company's Broadway offices.
