1950’s Horrockses Green and Black Cotton Dress

A wonderful example of Horrockses designs of the 1950’s. This dress is a sea green cotton with a black floral design and a slight sheen to the fabric, the colours are vibrant and in great condition.

Waist 26 inches (67 cms) as stated this could be made larger and probably was larger originally.

1950s Dress Carnegie Green and White Polka Dot 34 inch chest

Wow what a find!


This original amazing cotton dress is made by Carnegie in wonderful condition.  The dress has self covered buttons all down the front, six in fact on a white placket, with two patch pockets trimmed in white cotton also featuring a self made button on each.  The dress has a long original metal zip at the back and loops for your own belt.  There is a muslin lining from the waist in white and my mannequin is wearing a very full tulle petticoat in vanilla underneath which can be purchased separately, although the dress is beautiful without the fullness of the petticoat. The dress comes freshly laundered and was carried out on a cold wash.  The colours are very vibrant too.
