    gosh, that really is fabulous! love the beading detail, and yes the flattering narrow ribbing at the waist, too. it's amazing how modern it looks. she was so ahead of her time.

    here's to jeannie, who no longer wants to do this :trashpc:

    Thanks, Joan

    Yes, she was incredible. I've gathered that the dress was made 1951-1953, so about 60 years old. Hope I look that good at 60 ;-)

    As for the computer, it is still in jeporady!

    Lovely dress. Those pom-poms are rather cheeky. Do you have the reference for the date of this dress? It would be great if we could see the proportion of the length on your mannequin. That's another photo I'm afraid if you can handle another cocktail!

    A very beautiful dress...

    If you scroll down to page 180 of the cdn.calisphere link you posted, you will find this information (below), which seems to narrow the dates to 1952-1954:
