Prominent Designer A503; ca. 1955; Surrey - Misses' Dress.

"It’s a charmer. Obviously in good taste and with the expensive look of utterly simple elegance. It’s for those who select fashions that “do something” for them, this Surrey fashion you can make yourself by sending for Pattern A503. Covered shoulders frame the gently scooped neckline, curved for a pretty back view too. Smooth bodice, tiny waist, full but fluid skirt. Fashion extra – a graceful petticoat sewn beneath the skirt, molding its flare to perfection. Glowing turquoise pique fashions the Surrey original! – the little draped of chiffon scarf a deeper, vibrant blue. Sparkling polished cotton, linen would be other lovely choices – in bright-hot sun shades, or icy-cool pastels!" (as stated in Ottawa Citizen, May 7, 1955)
