I have a cute-as-a-button, Ranch Maid SQUARE DANCE DRESS from the 1950s. There is a lot of fabric in this 100% cotton dress. The skirt has four alternating rick-racked and gathered bands of black, and black and white stripes that are overlaid with pink roses. It spreads out to be more than 360 degrees in circumference.

The dress has an elasticized waist. I added a long sash that is pink and white striped on one side, and, on the other, two contrasting black and white patterns. (Image 3) The top has been altered to make it roomier. The neckline appears to have been made larger, and there are white cotton gussets under each sleeve. (Image 4) These gussets, which increase comfort and size flexibility, are not noticeable unless you stand with your hands propped on your head.

I would call the dress size a "Medium" -- but there is a lot of size flexibility due to its full skirt and elastic waist.

• Expanded Waist: 38"
• Contracted Waist: 24"
• Skirt Length: 26" waistband to hem
• Fullness: More than 360 degrees in circumference

• Very-good to Excellent Vintage.


So, what are waiting for? Swing your partner!
