Sophie of Saks Dress, 1958

In 1958, when the "chemise" or "sack" dress style was making headlines, Sophie of Saks refused to follow the trend and gave her high end customers what they wanted - a slender waist. For Spring of 1958, she offered this silk taffeta full skirted dress with matching full coat. Set sold for $725 in 1958 (about $5489 in today's dollar.)
