Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-23,Lethbridge, Alberta Symbol of equal rigki8 Tailored shirtdress popular By MARGARET NESS NEW YORK (CP) - Twenty years ago, shirtwaist dresses were a major trend for sports, afternoon and evening wear. This year they are still popular, providiQg a tailored aspect to th« ladylike look that pervades the spring fashions. For daytime, the shirtwaist dress appeared in navy cotton by Oscar de la Renta, black Trevira with white pin dots by Kimberley, white wool flannel by Ilie Wacs, patterned cr^ by Aldrich tnat can move from daytime to eveniog and turquoise Trevira matte Jersey with a pleated skirt by Leo Narducct. For evening, Goldworm showed a long shirtwaist in shimmering gold or silver metallic fabric and Adele SimpsoQ liked black tacked chiffon with sheer sleeves and jewelled cuff buttons. Miss Sun Valley of Toronto had a pink dacron-and-ootton style with floral design, ideal for resort life and for the city next stmuner. featured by GIBSON Tailored shirtwaists first appeared at the turn of the century vrtien women began to demand equal rights, especially the right to work in offices. Charies Dana Gibcon immortalized them in bis famous drawings and the OibsMi Girl, In her severe shirtwaist, long plain skirt and wide belt is a ^totype ci the present classic shirtwaist dress. Over the years, the shirtwaist had some setbacks. It^ demure look did not suit the roaring ’2Qs and something more exciting was called for after the Second World War with its uniform style of dress. In 1947 came Dior’s New Look, mid-calf length and closefitti^ elegance and the Shirtwaist virtually disappeared until 1954, when it stole the limelight briefly before being su(q?lanted by the Empire Look. It came back intermittently, especially in spring, 1964, when it was part of every collection, and eventually invaded the evening field, often in billowy satin with demure high neckline and French cuffs. There was even a revival of the Gibson Girl, ti^tly waisted but with full skirts. So popular did the shirtwaist dress beconte that Susan Small, the firm that made Princess Anne's wedding gown, k^t the same shirtwaist dress in her line for five years. I III!
