1960s Lilly Daisy Dress
Here's a late 1960s dress in Lilly Pulitzer fabric! Who's Lilly you might ask? Lilly Pulitzer started making her famous dresses in 1960. She and her dressmaker designed the original little cotton print shift dress to hide the stains she acquired working in her Palm Beach, Florida fruit juice stand. Before long, people were asking about the dress, so Pulitzer began selling the dresses at the stand. She got a tremendous boost when the first lady, Jackie Kennedy, was pictured in Life magazine wearing a Lilly Pulitzer dress. By 1961 she had a lot more orders for her “Lilly” dresses than for juice, so she closed the stand and opened Lilly Pulitzer, Inc. Her dresses were brightly colored and often whimsical prints that usually incorporated her name, “Lilly,” somewhere in the design. These dresses proliferated nationally throughout the 1960s and 1970s. This bright lime green, white, and yellow daisy print is typical of her style and even has her signature name in the print! It also features short cuffed sleeves, a notched collar, and large diagonal patch pocket on the right. It's unlabeled but feels like cotton and is in excellent vintage condition, fully lined but missing a belt. It's shown with a belt that's sold separately. The bust measures 38 in, waist 35 in, hips 40 in. This is an authentic one of a kind vintage piece in wearable condition, that has been cleaned and repaired (if necessary). Flaws will be noted, but please ask any questions you may have as this is a FINAL SALE garment and cannot be returned. All items are measured flat the same way we measure our reproduction items. The maximum measurement is listed. Most vintage fabrics do no have stretch, so please take into consideration when looking at size.
