Swirl dresses have bcome enormously popular lately, but one doesn't know is that back in the 40s the dresses were made as a wraparound apron! Yes as popular as they are today, they were considered house dresses back when they first came out -- quite stylish house dresses none the less!
Here is a photo of my 1940s Swirl dress, still as vibrant as the day it was made. Comfy cotton makes it the perfect summer dress!
This is my other Swirl dress, it has a cute collar, and ruffles around the sleeves and along the bottom hem.
I tired to take a close up of the ruffles but they didn't show too well.
You can see the ruffles at the bottom a little better.
I'm not sure if this one is from the 40s or 50s, but I've owned both close to 30 years, toss them in the washer and dryer and they never fade! They simply don't make fabrics like they use to!
One of the things I love most about Swirl dresses is that they have pockets. I'm a sucker for pockets, and won't even consider a coat unless it has pockets!
