The Ultimate Portrait Collar!

Atomic, Mid Century.............doesn't this collar remind you of something Judy Jettson would wear? Except of course she would have on ski pants instead of a full dirndl skirt.

The pattern is a Simplicity Designer Pattern from 1950...........and I will be listing it along with several other Fabulous Fifties patterns from the same Estate Lot this weekend. The lot included a gorgeous 1952 Wedding Gown with a Big Bertha Collar and some smashing Criss Cross Bodice Bombshell Dresses. The lady who had these was small and knew how to accentuate the Negative with Bust Enhancing designs.

i adore that collar!! i so wish we wore clothes like that now. i was shopping for the mother-in-law, a pink sweater for a 75 year old woman. the only thing that struck me throughout the entire department store was the overall ugliness of clothes these days. yuck. all of those babydoll silhouettes and hideous tiny flowered polyester fabrics. ugly, ugly, ugly. i'm on a clothing strike.
