Vintage Dress: 1950s Outfit for Fall

This vintage dress in fall colors is a perfect transition outfit into cooler weather. Add a toasty cardi to it when things grow colder. From the 1950s or very early 60s (based on the longer skirt length), this classic 'Mad Men' era sheath dress seems to be custom made, complete with fine piping around the neckline, waistline and sleeves.

I also wanted to share how great the fabric design from this dress is. It has a neat mid-century modern air to it, with the geometric color patches and cross-hatch overlay.

I am not a dress girl, but I love the fabric!

This fabric really 'makes' the dress!
