Squaw or patio dress is actually a two piece set of matching top and full skirt. Crisp floral cotton top is darted at bust with double side darts in both the front and back for extra shape. Pink cotton yoke front features 8 rows of pink and silver rick rack in varying widths with a pink and silver metallic ribbon in the center. Closes at side with a metal Talon zipper. Three tier gathered skirt features a hem with 10 rows of silver and pink rick rack in a variety of widths on wither side of the metallic ribbon. Closes with a metal zipper topped with a much older abalone button. Colors are slightly darker than they appear in these photos.

I bought a box full of these from a friend who's Mother made them all for when she went square dancing in the 1950s.


I do not pin clothing on models, but prefer instead to show you my garments on people they actually fit. Britta's measurements at the time of this photo shoot were 37.5"-29"-44.5" and she stands 5'11" tall. She is also very long in the waist.


~Bust: Up to 40"
~Sleeve length from neck: 11"
~Length: 22.5"


~Waist: Up to 28" Button can be moved to make this slightly larger or smaller in the waist.
~Hip: Full
~Length: 28"
~Sweep of hem: 210"


Very Good condition rating an 8 out of 10. The rick rack has an inch or two loose at the hem in a couple of spots. I only noticed while measuring the sweep. The waistband was reinforced with a twill band set with rubber that is deteriorating. It could be removed, but I would leave it and wear it as it's found as the twill keeps the waistband up quite well and it's not visible from the outside of the garment.
