Dinah was SO big on bouffant
"See the USA, in your Chevrolet...mmmaaawha!"


Here is a video which, if for nothing else, is extremely interesting because of the skirt of the dress which Dinah is wearing.
Tessy guesses there is a hoop under there, due to its bell shape, coupled with the way it sways when she moves.  Very intriguing...

Wendy writes:  "Those dresses with bell skirts often had very stiff underskirts to give them that shape.
They moved very much as if they had hoops, but I never came across any that did."

Rikki: "That dress is to swoon over for sure.  Makes her waist look like about 22".  She must be wearing a black crinoline as we
don't see any white peeking out when she twirls or sits.  Cars were great back in '59, but especially were the dresses."
