Pinstripe Pinafore (outfit #46)

I have a strange little wishlist of random vintage goodies that I'm always looking to find.  The list borders somewhere between random and bizarre, and I'm not sure exactly where I get the ideas.  Currently on my list is; a horse head brooch (preferably Bakelite), a rooster brooch, a fish themed novelty skirt, a hat with a bird's nest, and pinafore type dress.  I told you I was random!  I started a search for pinafore dresses, and discovered that many on the uniforms from the 40s-50s were made in this style.  I liked the idea of a candy-striper style dress and was preparing to purchase one, when I came across this blue and white pinstipe one on ebay.  I'm wearing it with a cocoa 1960s, cropped blouse, and my Sarah Coventry seagull brooch. My 1950s mustard yellow cardigan is made by a company called Blairmoor.

  1. Love it! Absolutely love it! Hand on my heart, I've been searching for pinafore dresses this very same morning (I really, really want a 1940s one with ruffled sleeves that doesn't cost an arm and a leg), so this post seems especially timely to me.

    1. I actually bought that exact pinafore in red plaid for my sweet baby girl. Wouldn't it be funny if you ended up with the same dress?
      Have a happy Easter!

  3. That dress is so fun! I love the buttons at the waist. It reminds me of when we used to wear waitress dresses in high school.
