1950’s Natlynn blue bouclé knit dress with jewel neckline.

A chic dress in a ‘teddy bear’ like fabric that has stretch. Has two metal zips, one to the nape and another to the side. It also has pockets (!) and a self fabric belt.

Looks nice on, the shoulder pads give this such a great silhouette. Looks Forties but Natlynn adverts show similar dresses around 1956 and I believe the company operated from the turn of the decade.

Natlynn was an American fashion brand that sold good quality, fashionable dresses that generally cost over £100 in today’s money. They also collaborated with designers / actresses, including Edith Head and Janet Leigh, to create dresses based on those worn onscreen.

Best fit: UK8
Bust: 32”
Rigid waistband: 27”
Hips: 40”
Length: 43” the hem has been taken up by hand and could be lowered

Label: Natlynn An Exclusive Original

The top is unlined, the skirt is lined in blue art silk, the seams have been finished with pinking shears (common in the Fifties) and there are a few inches in the hem which is tape finished - a sign this was made in the US (where I bought it from).

Condition: This has had a gentle hand wash but there are a few marks to the shoulder pads (fraying to edges) and lining. The inside of the belt is a bit grubby (not attempted cleaning it) and wear to the inner belt holes. Missing a few beads towards the end on one side (not greatly noticeable) and may have the odd stray thread.

All my vintage clothing is cleaned and ready to wear but do note the above.

All vintage items have been pre-used, unless stated otherwise, and may have gentle signs of wear.
