Estate sale find: stunning 1950s or early 1960s linen dress. The color is gorgeous--a periwinkle/robin's egg/Tiffany blue that is right on time for summer. The cap sleeves are seamed down the center of the sleeve so the edge has a flirty flip. The waistline is high to create a sack-like bust, and the skirt falls gracefully in a skimming A-Line. The label is Lois Young, Dallas.

Label: Lois Young, Dallas
Size: No size tag in garment. I venture this is a size 6/8
Fabric content: no tag in garment, but it's a raw woven linen

Measurements:
34" bust line shown on my 34" mannequin (the bust is pleated for a sack-like fit). It can accommodate a larger bust (up to 38").
30" waistline (the high waist is gathered with sewn pinch pleats and is not stretchy--it's a 30" waistline)
38" -40" hips
15-1/2" from bottom of crew neck collar to waistline
25-1/2" from waistline to hemline
15" across shoulders to where the raglan style cap sleeve naturally curves.
2" hem (in case you want to let out the hemline)
1-1/2" seam allowance in the back center seam (for alterations)
1-1/4" seam allowance on side seams (for alterations)
* there is a liner in the skirt, though only on the backside.
I have shown it with a vintage Anne Klein for Calderon belt, which I think looks good but is not included. There are belt string loops on each hip. I like it with a skinny belt but the loops are larger and can accommodate a wider belt.

Condition: excellent vintage condition. Very clean and fresh looking. Honestly it looks to have never been worn at all. There are no rips, stains. or blemishes, I would call this dress wear (right) now.

Convo me with any questions, and thanks for checking out my shop.

Cheers!
