Summer Cover-up Dresses - 1958

Tell me honestly, would you have guessed 1958?  Not I!  If I found any of these cover-up dresses, I would have guessed mid to late 1960s based upon their short length and shift style.  Just goes to show, you learn something new every day.  Above, Greta Plattry striped cotton tunic length dress with matching shorts in green and blue stripes.  Set sold for $20 in 1958 (about $156 in today's dollar.)  Mr. John hat.

 Black and white striped cotton dress with drawstring waist by Toni Owen.  Sold for $10 in 1958 (about $78 in today's dollar.)  Hat by Mr. John.

 John Weitz terrycloth tunic dress with fringed hem and sash belt.  Sold for $14 in 1958 (about $109 in today's dollar.)

 Greta Plattry short dress with matching panties in tiers of white eyelet cotton.  Wow, this really looks late 60s or even early 70s to me!  Sold for $40 in 1958 (about $311 in today's dollar.)

Haymaker sleeveless dress with shirt tail hem.  Sold for $14 in 1958 (about $109 in today's dollar.)
