RESERVED for Debra Patterson

This dress belonged to Skeeter Davis, Grand Ole Opry member and 1st crossover country/pop artist. It was purchased from her estate in Brentwood, TN in 2005. Based on my reasearch and reading, I think she probably did not make this, rather had it made for her.
The photo shows Skeeter wearing this dress while performing on the Ryman - Opry stage during the Martha White Hour - circa 1970.

Small check navy and white gingham provide the backdrop for an exquisite display of crochet trimmed sleeves and center bust. A second glance reveals that the crochet work serves as the lacing mechanism for long cotton cord ties. A wide white layer of scalloped eyelet lace adorns the bottom between the two ruffles, and similar 1 inch lace trims the neckline and cuffs.

The Shelf bust and empire waist make a lovely silhouette. And how can you go wrong with those stunning mutton sleeves?! Wide side sash tails tie to the back with a puffy bow or simple drape. Nylon back zipper closure. Two deep layers of ruffles at the bottom make a grand, 11 yard sweep.
