Summer Dresses - 1965

In a radical change from 5 years ago, gone are the full skirted styles that reigned for nearly 15 years. The look is tailored and elegant, with the merest hint of shaping at the waist. Just starting to appear are Mod, Op-art, Pop-art, and Psychedelic styles that will become wildly popular over the next few years. Hemlines are on the rise, and will soon be called mini. Here, dresses for the heat of summer from 1965.

Dior black and white silk print tailored wrap dress.

Guy Laroche silk dress in a pop-art swirl print.

Tailored sheath in apricot voile by R&K. Sold for $20 in 1965 (about $139 in today's dollar).

Jean Patou red linen princess seamed dress.

Bill Blass for Maurice Rentner double layer op-art dress in organza over crepe.

Tony Armstrong white linen sheath with blue and red stripes has a decidedly Mod feel. Sold for $100 in 1965 (about $693 in today's dollar).

While most of the shapes stay the same as the 1950s, hemlines are shorter, and there is less emphasis on a tiny waist. Here, dresses for hot summer days from 1960. The first 4 photos were taken by photographer extraordinaire, Lillian Bassman for Harper's Bazaar at the Hacienda Galindo outside San Miguel de Allende in Mexico.

American Golfer pink dotted swiss cotton top and pleated skirt. Sold for $18 in 1960 (about $134 in today's dollar).

Summer Dresses - 1954

Monday, June 28, 2010 0 comments
How I love the mid 1950s, which is the height of full skirt dressing. Skirts have yards and yards of fabric and a shape that flares straight out from the waist. Hems are a few inches below the knee. Alternatively, slim sheaths that are fitted to the body are also in vogue. Whether full or slim, though, its all about a tiny waist. Here, dresses for the heat of summer from 1954.

Jerry Parnis black and white striped cotton dress.
Sold for $45 in 1954 (about $368 in today's dollar).

B.H. Wragge beige linen with black figural stripes accented with black ribbon. Sold for $50 in 1954 (about $408 in today's dollar).

Givenchy red and white polka dot silk dress. Note how the belt is tied instead of buckled.

Sheath dress made from Simplicity pattern 4633 in red embroidered Moygashel linen.

Gay Gibson green and white gingham check dress.
Sold for $13 in 1954 (about $106 in today's dollar).

Playing with paper~

I made this little gift card holder recently. I tell ya, it was like pulling teeth for me to work on it.... its hard to put any effort into something knowing full well its going to be thrown away the first chance they get..... Anywho, I took two vintage bingo cards, distressed them... tore one and glued it on top of the other to make a pocket to hold a gift card... I had plans to do much-much more to this piece... but you know...I used an existing pocket envelope that I embellished with vintage lace and 3 tissue paper flowers that I made using a vintage dress pattern. The bingo card slipped in perfectly~The hardest part was essentially tossing in the garbage using 3 mother of pearl buttons and a piece of vintage lace... cause YOU KNOW..... it IS going in the trash.... *sigh*.... I think I need to go drape some vintage lace around my neck and run my hands through some of my buttons now~

Mad Hatter's Tea Party~

Dear sweet little Alice decided to leave her lovely little cottage to take a long stroll through the woods by her home.It was a lovely spring-like day, perfect for a walk. It seemed like the flowers she saw growing wild amongst the trees were swaying as if dancing to the birds singing their lovely tunes in the tree tops above her. Something off in the distance made Alice quicken her pace. "Whats this?" Alice said out loud-- which was silly because Alice was all alone. "Sit, eat, enjoy yourself" was the reply. Alice was wondering to herself... self-- did you say "Sit, eat, enjoy yourself?" Again, she heard the purring voice say, "Sit down girl, eat some food, enjoy yourself." Looking quickly around, Alice spied a striped cat sitting on a branch of a tree... surely that cat didn't say all of that. "Hello girl, I am a cheshire cat... I've invited you to sit at this lovely table that is set before you.There are yummy cookies and a delightful sweet cranberry tea that is of the highest quality made by fairies that live in this area.Alice was befuddled. Everything was so out of the ordinary that it made dear sweet little Alice dizzy... so, dear sweet little Alice pulled out a chair and sat down. Surely this wasn't meant for her! Know one knew she was going for a walk today, or that she would end up taking this very path-- not even Alice knew herself. Looking at the table set before her she was quite suprised at the spread that was laid out before her. Cranberry tea that smelled like a boutique of sweet roses, next to a plate of sugar cookies piled high. Alice could only image how great it all would taste. "Please help yourself to whatever is your hearts desire, I must go curl up in a sunny spot and take a nap." And with that, the cheshire cat sashayed away flicking his tail to and fro as his huge belly sashayed in the opposite direction as his tail. It was all Alice could do but laugh at the cat as he walked away.
As dear sweet little Alice settled down from such a happy-funny sight she felt much more comfortable with her surroundings and now the idea of a table set with such yumminess in the middle of nowhere wasn't so unbelieveable. Dear sweet little Alice grabbed a few cookies and set them on the plate in front of her and then poured herself a cup of the cranberry tea. Without even a taste, she added four sugar cubes for good measure. Within a few bites of a sweet sugar cookie, dear sweet little Alice felt the weight of someone staring at her. She twirled around in her chair out of fear and embarrasment and set her eyes upon a dear sweet little fella wearing a odd looking hat. A startled Alice spoke in a soft voice, "Oh, my-- hello... is this your table set so beautifully that I was invited to sit at?" The little fella stepped right up to Alice and replied, "Yes, please sit and if you don't mind, I'll join you for some riparian refreshments." The two fell into a happy conversation as they both enjoyed the cookies and the sweet cranberry tea. Without hesitation the sweet fella hopped to his feet to get somemore cranberry tea....Alice being the inquisitive girl that she was, asked the fella, "Why wear such a big hat if you have to hold onto it all the time?" With down cast eyes, the fella wearing the huge hat confessed to Alice.... "I'm addicted to sweets." "I use this big hat to carry the large gumdrops that I grow in my garden."

Alice knew she could help out this nice fella who was addicted to sweets, for she knew that addiction herself..... "You don't have to use your hat silly," said Alice as she laughed with a solution. She spied a large basket that would serve the purpose well! The nice fella was overjoyed with the thought of having such a large basket to carry his sweet-sweet gumdrops.
Alice was happy to help her neighbor... then she got an idea! "If you love sweets, and I love sweets.... I betcha everybody would like some sweets!"
Alice, noticing the time, told the fella she would be back the next day.Alice took one of the fella's gumdrops home... she had a plan.The next day she informed the fella that they had to wash all of the gumdrops that he had collected... she had come up with a plan! With my Nana's recipe for chocolate chip cookies and these huge sweet gumdrops... hmmmmm...And now you know the rest of the story~
