In the 1950s, shirtjacs with contrasting colors and fabrics for men were a casual trend that took off like wildfire, and that extended into the 60s. This is the first shirtjac inspired DRESS that we have ever found, and are thrilled to offer it here for our rockabilly clients.
We LOVE the colorway of deep olive green with cream and harvest gold, and we also love that this in a little-bit-larger size!

The fabric has the hand of a sueded silk, however we feel it most likely is a very nice polyester blend instead.

By the way, this looks so much better on a person than a mannequin; this is a little long waisted, and it's too large for our mannequin, so it looks a bit frumpy on her.
She can be worn with a petticoat, but we like her worn just the way she is, nice and soft and swishy!
This is a rockabilly girl's dream dress! perfect for Viva Las Vegas, or any RAB weekender.
