Can you tell I'm a Judy Jetson fan? This silhouette of the 1950's was iconographic of that era in fashion. Modern and sculptural. I was so excited when I found this piece years ago in a shop in Tallahassee!

The label say Molly Modes New York. The fabric is ivory silk organza and is silkscreened with black calligraphic marks which gives the print an asian feel. The wide collar and 3/4 length sleeves, the full skirt, all attaching to the solid black lined obi-like waist revealing the garment worn beneath-most likely a black wiggle dress fitted to the knees! But try it with a black catsuit as well, or leggings and a cami or black bra, if you dare! I show it here with a black petticoat beneath the skirt(not included) and also on figure with a black wiggle dress(sold separately) The hem is reinforced with a stiff ribbon that must have some plastic to give the skirt body.

This piece is in good vintage condition--there is a tear on the sleeve near the seam, which is shown(a good seamstress could take it in the seam and take in the other sleeve to match as well)and a few small,light rust-like stains on the back collar, one or two the size of nail heads on the hem as well. Someone had taken in the waist to narrow the ribcage, I let it out, I also did some small repairs here and there(can show by photos if needed) to improve stability of garment. Fabric still has crisp presentation and this piece is still wearable on occasion. Also would be a great piece for a photo shoot!
