SPECIAL Dress For The Holidays this 1960's Silk Tartan Plaid with green velvet trim Poly Flinders Smocked dress in size 10 from BEST & CO Fifth Avenue, New York. They closed their door around 1970 after many, many years in business. I had worked there in 1963...right after I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology. I was waiting for a job to open up in textiles...which it did!
The dress is in excellent vintage condition. There are no tears, holes, or stains that I can see. It would even nicer after a dry cleaning since it was stored for many, many years! There is also a nice big 3" hem! This dress was made in Madagascar.
Here are the measurements......
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER...11"
CHEST...27.5"...PLEASE NOTE that the smocking is expandable both on chest and waist.
