Prominent Designer M309; ca. 1956; Jerry Parnis - Capes are stirring up a breeze again – his one just enough cover against the chils of summer evenings. Follow the line of buttons – to the smart sleek dress beneath! “The cape-costume is completely changing our concept of warm-weather fashions”, declares its talented American designer Jerry Parnis – “from bareness, to a lightly covered look.” So much more graceful and feminine – we agree! This new theme carries on to the little sleeves of the dress a slim symmetric beauty (simple, yet wise in the ways of figure-flattery). Choose a crisp cotton or linen; fine silk surah or tweed – you have a wide selection of fabrics to please your personal taste (as stated in The News and Courier, April 15, 1956).
