Vintage 1950s 1960s Blue Rose Fit And Flare Dress by Elinor Gay
Fantastic vintage dress in an absolutely gorgeous print of blue and green flowers; I believe I see roses there and maybe hydrangeas or peonies some sort of daisy-like flowers, such a variety. Scooped neckline and pleated skirt and short cap sleeves, slight bullet shape to the bust. Full skirt though not a full circle, with a built in tulle crinoline and is lined in pellon, and...this is cool, a narrow pencil skirt underneath in the same floral print. See photos. Metal zipper down the back. This is the PRETTIEST dress and perfect for just about any event. Feels like rayon or similar to me. Small sized I'd say. Label reads: Elinor Gay Original, and has a union made label dating it to later 50s or early 60s.
Excellent vintage condition. Nearly mint in my opinion. One of my current shop favorites. I suspect this one will go quickly so don't hesitate on it.
