Prominent Designer A 583; ca. 1953; Misses' Dress. Original by Esther Reifer.

“LOW AND BEHOLD the devastating new Esther Reifer neckline. The front - a curve of flattery! The back - held by a single T – strap. Bare? Ah yes, but very, very beautiful. Best of all, you can move gesture, dance with complete social security. If a, supremely, magnificently comfortable neckline and THE line for the too small or too ample bosom. That simple seaming on the bodice is Just another Reifer device of good design that accomplishes miracles. But that's not all this figure wizard does for you. She nips the waist, then releases flowing; impressed pleats in one of the most graceful skirts to whirl around town. A long zipper down the back assures the doll - waist look you love. Sewing? No complications. Fabric? The original is a printed cotton, but you might make your copy in textured pique shantung, or silk.” (as stated in The New York Age, June 13th, 1953
