    Hi all,

    I bought this lovely suit several years ago and am wondering if anyone has any info on the Buddy Bates label. I think the suit dates from the 1950s - the skirt has a side metal zipper, is 28 inches long and the department store label looks to me like a 50s label; the only thing that makes me wonder is the font of the Buddy Bates label, which looks possibly early 60s to me. I thought I'd post about it and see what comes up.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I was going to say the suit looks c. 1958 to me - blouson back, jabot, wide collar, large buttons, hem length... I suspect its contemporary to the Pinterest ad.

    Thanks Sheila, that does indeed help! The suit in the Pinterest ad is also a pretty one and does indeed seem contemporary to mine.
