Shirtwaist Deja Vu


 What comes around goes around... have a look at this Serbin shirtwaist dress in striped cotton chambray, made in the late 50s with a fantastic spiderweb style design.


 

And here it is again!  This time it's a 1980s version, nearly a line for line copy in synthetic knit from J.J. Dean of California.  

Designers have always borrowed from the past, and they still do.  Our huge vintage clothing collection is a treasure trove for inspiration!
