Going antiquing in 1957? You would want one of these two-piece dresses. The left fashion is made of tweed-like fabric with a slim skirt, bloused jacket top, and detachable collar.
The right is a wool two-piece dress with a fitted top, wide collar and bow, and a zippered front closing and a knife-pleated skirt. Both dresses by McArthur cost $25 and came in red, royal blue, brown and black.
The little girl on the left is wearing a Bates plaid dress and a matching rain cape and tam. $13 bought the complete outfit. Th older girl's "beruffled sissy top" and plaid skirt was under $6. Both girls outfits were by Mary Jane. Their "babysitter" wears a Ship 'n Shore blouse with button on tie, $3.
