Prominent Designr A799; postmarked 1953; Cabana Original by Isabel Dobson - Misses' Dress. "The hit of Cabana’s summer collection is a neckline that’s the Nth degree of drama on a dress that’s simple— and simply beautiful! You can make this dress in a day—waltz out in it that night (only three pattern parts). If the “ohs” and “ahs” that greeted the Original at the Cabana showing are any indication, you can’t possibly be a wallflower in this. “The shoulders are elasticized,” says inspired, young American designer Isabel Dobson, “so you can adjust them for a look that's demure by day—daring by night.” Thanks to that elastic they stay put, too. Miss Dobson’s Original is a flower- sprigged cotton. ‘I like a cool, airy fabric for summer,” she says. Of course, you, the home dressmaker, can choose your favorite fabric for your own exclusive copy of this Prominent Designer Original Pattern A799" (as stated in Monroe Morning World, May 31, 1953)
