Floral frock

“1950. gados ziedu rakstu kleita bija standarta apģērba gabals jebkuras sievietes vasaras garderobē. Ziedu kleita tika vilkta ejot uz vairākiem dienas laika pasākumiem, tāpat kā 1930. gados – ikdienai, izbraucieniem dabā, dienai pie jūras. Pat ja laika apstākļi bija apmākušies, kā bieži tas Lielbritānijā gadās, sievietes vilka savas ziedu kleitas pāri tām uzvelkot jaciņu. Ziedu rakstu kleitas bija pieņemts vilkt arī kāzās un citos svinīgos pasākumos. Piemēram, tas nebija nekas pārsteidzošs, ja goda viesis kāzās ieradās puķainā kleitiņā.” (R.Harden & J. Turney “Floral Frocks”) Šī kleita ir Esteres izlaiduma kleita. To var vilkt kopā ar apakšsvārkiem, papildus kuplumam, vai iztikt bez tiem.
“The floral printed frock was standard daytime summer-wear for woman of all backgrounds throughout the 1950’s. A floral print dress could work on a number of different daytime occasions, as in the 1930’s – smart dress for a day, excursion, beach. Even if the weather was chilly or overcast as often in Britain, women still wore their floral printed frocks. They simply put on a coat or a cardigan over the top. Floral frocks were also acceptable for the most formal day-time occasions, such as weddings. It was quite usual, for example, for the most important guest at the wedding to wear a floral frock.”(R.Harden & J. Turney “Floral Frocks”) This dress was made for Estere’s graduation day. Can be worn with a petticoat for the fuller skirt or without.
