What Betty Draper wore while she was pregnant. Cotton, above-knee, empire-waist shift with tiniest cap sleeves and double-layer bodice treatment in orange, yellow, and olive green abstract rose floral on a creamy white ground. Sweet, but not cutesy or infantile. Well constructed. Unlined. Nylon Talon back zip with top hook&eye. Plenty of extra length in the front to accommodate your growing belly. Perfect for spring and summer, but will also work into fall with leggings and a sweater. Sweet, but not at all cutesy or infantile. From the late 50s or early 60s, and local theater Onstage Atlanta.
Shown with and without makeshift baby bump.
