Mollie Parnis created clothing that stood the test of time. She once remarked to an interviewer that "good designing doesn't mean dresses you have to throw away every year. Things shouldn't go out of date overnight." Her classic fashions were coveted by wealthy socialites and worn by many first ladies, including Mamie Eisenhauer and Lady Byrd Johnson.

This 1950s dress is a lovely example of her elegant, feminine designs.

~Steel blue silk with white polka dots.
~Shirtwaist style with short sleeves.
~Lightweight shoulder pads.
~Marching fabric covered buttons.
~The ends of curved bands of fabric that are sewn on yoke, cross at center bust and attach with two large rhinestone buttons. A very unique design detail.
~Full, flared skirt has gathers at waist seam in front.
~Matching belt accompanies the dress.
~Snap closure and hook and eye at waist.
~Label reads "Mollie Parnis, New York"

Actual Garment Measurements-
Bust 36" (best fits someone measuring 34/35" with a b or c cup to fill out the front darts.)
Waist 26"
Shoulder to waist 16 1/2"
Waist to hem 25" (There is a 4" hem that could be lowered if desired)

Excellent, near flawless condition. There is one button that doesn't match the rest exactly. Has the same fabric. So may have been made as a replacement for an original that was lost. Looks close enough that it is not detracting when wearing.

Shown with petticoat for display purposes. Sold separately.

Dry clean only.
