Larry Aldrich jumps into the New Look in 1951 with this dress made of black rayon faille. The full skirt is pleated onto a dropped waist and measures 4 yards around at the hem. Sold for $50 in 1951 (about $435 in today's dollar.)

1950s - wow. I love it that I have a skirt that's very similar to that. Now I need a low-backed top like this one.
