1950s Suzy Perette Citrus Floral Cotton Voile Pleated Skirt Dress
This little beautiful Suzy Perette dress is made of a beautiful light weight fabric with a floral pattern in an array of citrus hues. I have not found a really great Perette dress in ages and am so pleased to have such a fine example of her work in the shop today. There never was an actual "Suzy" behind the label but the company that created the line relied heavily on the designs coming out of Paris and the interpretations of the Couture looks, in particular Dior's "New Look", were spot on. This gorgeous little dress dates from the 1950s and has such pretty colors and pretty lines that you can't help but swoon at the sight of it. The top is a simple sleeveless affair with a wide boat neck cut. It is seamed to hug the body and then this flares out and tops a full skirt that has lots of fabric in it and could be worn over a crinoline if you wanted it even fuller. The entire skirt is made from a series of perfectly spaced, crisp knife pleats so it has a lot of movement. The original, matching fabric belt cinches in the waist even more and I love the large flat belt that adorns the belt. The colors are lovely, the cotton voile fabric of very good quality and the lines and cut are wonderful. Excellent condition Fully lined with a white muslin and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The belt is in excellent shape as well. Bust: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 20.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 16" from top of shoulder to waist Skirt: 26.5" from waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free.
