What? Really? That print is... Some kind of wading sea bird in brown stepping all around many piles of... Of... Well it is, isn't it? Hilarious, ridiculous, surreal. A talking point for any party. It's a simple A-line shift shape with a couple of darts at the bust and a piecrust trim at the crew neck. There's a generous 4" in the hem if you want it longer. It's size 8, but it's more a 6. By The Vested Gentress, hand screened.
Measurements: bust 36", hip 38", shoulder 14", length 38"
STORY: This is by the small quirky husband-and-wife firm called The Vested Gentress that operated in Pennsylvania from 1961 to the mid-1980s, whose hand-screened animal-centric prints were the work of Bud Jackson, the husband. In fact I'm not completely sure this is not later than the 1960s, because the styles didn't change very much. I had to get this, for obvious print reasons, but it should really be worn, and it looks dreadful on me, being both white and shifty.
