Vintage 1950s Dress With Jacket, Jonathan Logan Polkadot New Look
Perfectly perfect little summer sundress circa 1950s. Dark red with slightly lighter red flowers with white round centers giving the overall impression of a polkadot. The bodice of the dress is lined in solid red , the skirt is unlined. The jacket is lined through the body but not the sleeves, in the same solid red. Jacket sleeves are 3/4 length and it has a hook and eye at the collar, otherwise its open. There is a little red flower pin included. The dress has a back metal zipper, and wide shoulder straps. I think my favorite thing about this dress are the box pleats in the skirt in front and back, trimmed with red. The skirt is not quite a full circle but close. Cotton, I believe, or maybe a cotton silk or rayon blend as there is some slight sheen to the fabric, and small-ish sized. Label reads: Jonathan Logan. One of my current shop faves.
Excellent vintage condition. I cant find anything to report with the dress, its pretty perfect. The jacket has one pea sized hole in the right armpit, and another little cluster of small holes beneath that and then another little cluster right where the flower pin is. I don't know if the flower was added later to cover these little holes, or if the flower was pulled at one time and is the cause of the holes. Either way, these bust holes are the most visible and the flower hides them pretty much perfectly. Way to go little flower!
