Vintage Catherine Ogust cotton shirtdress. Background is white with lime green, pink, blue and lilac petals. Styled with the mandarine collar, front knot buttons, 3/4 length cuffed sleeves with a long zipper in the back and side seam pockets. Wide Obi style cloth sash is included which is often missing from the original dress.
Label is Catherine Ogust for Penthouse Gallery which was created in 1955 and the fabric is marked with her name.
There are some condition issues. On the lower front left is 2 pin size holes with another one on the back left. They are about 8 inches below the waist area. On the upper bodice left front is a light yellowish stain. It has been given a gentle handsoak so I think the stain may be permanent. I have photographed these areas closely and my pricing reflects this damage.
No size is indicated so please check the measurements below.
Bust is 45 inches, waist is 44 inches, hips are 48 inches, shoulders are 17 inches and total length is 40 inches.
