Prominent Designer M289 image

Prominent Designer M289; ca. 1956; “Back view in the news – and it’s the deeply V’d decolletage, the myriad of soft back folds from waist to hemline that mark this dress as newly 1957. Thanks to Grabois for this couture pattern – and the many compliments a woman will receive for sewing it. This late-day dress is the nicest flattery your figure could have – bosom raised, rounded and softly sheathed; silhouette smooth and slender. The designer Original, a fiery crimson silk, would fit beautifully under furs right now; solo under southern skies. Or shantung, fine cotton, linen - lovely lilting fabrics for spring and summer evenings" (as stated in The News and Courier, December 9, 1956)
