Thanks in advance! Love the huge buttons & pockets. I believe it's late 50s - early 60s. It is not gingham fabric, just Black & White checks. I watched 4 re-runs of Mad Men the other night just to see the clothes. 1st time I ever watched it. This looks like a dress Peggy might wear - or does it? I gotta buy some better belts. This could really do with a Black Patent one.
