New to using the Show and Tell, so will have to take better pictures for postings. This dress is in great condition, has no labels inside. Round buttons, two pockets.. Looks like it might be vintage and from 50's or 60's era, was hoping someone could help me with that.

    Without a better photo, hard to guess. Might be newer than 60s - maybe 90s. Lining helps sometimes - type of fabric. Check under the lining at the seams for a label. Sometimes they hide there. DD@Phila

    Added additonal photos of buttons. Maybe that will help with determing if its old or not. Checked lining again and could not find any labels. Any yes DD@Phila this is fun. I found a new hobby. Taking the pictures of things I know nothing about or things I do like and have some knowledge of but want more information on it. Thanks for your input.

    Where did you get it? Was it a thrift store, garage sale etc? It's hard to say without seeing it and feeling it in person. I agree with FineLines as possible 90's.

    I couldn't figure out the material. A friend of mine thought wool, but didn't feel like wool, it was too smooth. Is there such a thing as pressed wool? It was given to me because friends know I like vintage stuff.

    Hi Donna. Could be a wool blend or acrylic knit - popular in mid-century clothing. They wear well and were washable. If there aren't moth holes, then it might be a synthetic knit. Still difficult to gauge the era from the pix. Now that you are hooked on the research part of collecting vintage apparel, there is a favorite author, John Peacock, who creates wonderful sourcebooks for each fashion era. Your local library may/should have a collection of his books. You'll find drawings illustrating the iconic designs for each of those eras as well as the accessories featured at that time. Valuable resource for learning. Have fun. DD
