Actress Jane Russell models a Serbin Golfer dress from 1949. Not only for sports, Serbin sold this dress for daytime around-the-house wear too. Versatility is the key here with a full length separating zipper hidden behind the fly front, sleeves than could unbutton for more room, a pleated back yoke for easy movement and removable shoulder pads. Made of striped cotton chambray. Sold for $12.95 in 1949 (about $123 in today's dollar.)
