Summer Jumpsuit - 1958

Whoa!  And you thought the jumpsuit was a 70s invention!  This one piece jumpsuit by Baldini is from 1958.  I love the bold black and white cotton print.  There is no indication, but this probably buttons or zips at the front.  It looks fabulous on her, but since there is no stretch in the fabric, I'll bet this wasn't all that comfortable to wear.  Sold in 1958 for $35 (about $276 in today's dollar.)
