Prominent Designer M320; ca. 1952; Dorothy Dickerson - Misses' Blouse and Skirt. " 'Fabulous!' It is the word you hear again and again at American designer Dorothy Dickerson's showings. Her "one-of-a-kind'’ separates are exciting in fashion and magnificent in fabric. Pattern M320 brings you her most beautiful cocktail creation. The backswept drapery the blouse—backswept fullness of the skirt are inspired by a real holiday mood of splendor. Note how the shoulder drapery curves around your arm creating the flattery of a sleeve—it’s a completely new line in fashion! The pockets of the skirt, blazoned with Jet beading and braid, accent the ruler-slim front. The smart girl who sews can easily pocket the difference between the cost of this beautiful original and making It! Miss Dickerson chose pale blue silk taffeta and heavy black faille for her original. Think of it too, in a combination of satin and bengahne or all in gold-shot taffeta or faille" (as stated in Waco Tribune Herald, October 26, 1952)
