Fashions of The Fifties
See through bodice/skirt Era fad
...something that will stir the memories of some our more seasoned visitors
dresses, popular for a while during The Era, allowed
the onlooker to
see most of the full-bodiced petticoat underneath. This was of
comfort to said onlookers, including us and a myriad of others...what a great fashion!
The image on the left is
definitively from 1958. The right is 'first day of school,'
Here is an (unfortunately) small picture of a typical little girl
from 1958. Only
this one is interesting, in that the petticoat
apparent through the translucent material of
the dress, and, of
course, shows en frou frou as well. Technical Producer Crinolyn
up the image as best as she could - click on picture.
A 1958 class picture...
the boy behind the girl near the right front, we'd be smiling
"Aw... but she looks so sad!"
