1959 Party Dress
Party Like it’s 1959.
Gas is 25 cents.
The world connects—Alaska and Hawaii become the 49th and 50th US states, the computer modem and microchip are invented, and the Boeing 707 is the first commercial jet to complete a transpacific flight.
The world also disconnects—Nixon and Khrushchev debate in a replica of an American Kitchen, turning up the heat on the cold war, barely agreeing to disagree.
Ella and Elvis are big, so is Barbie, and so are dynamic fit-and-flares, dramatic collars, and striking silhouettes.
There are momentous things rightaround the corner, including your individuality.
1959 Party Dress (No. 5938). A lustrous pure cotton poplin that is sturdy and elegant enough to see you into the new decade. Distinctive V-neckline with point collar at front and back that extends to the shoulders. Waistline seam with four box pleats at the front and back gives the skirt volume and drape.
Cuts a lovely figure with the princess seams at the front bodice and back shaping darts. Skirt falls to the mid-calf, on-seam side pockets, fully lined in acetate taffeta, invisible zipper at center back. Imported.
