Greta Plattry, 1956

     I've done a few posts about Greta Plattry in the past.  You can see some of her work from 1955 here and from 1954 here.  Her sportswear always looks so comfortable and fun while remaining on the cutting edge.  The garments shown today are from 1956.  I am in love.  Don't miss the gold metallic mules worn throughout.

    Above:  Madras plaid cotton embroidered with gold and silver threads.  The sundress features a bra top and wide waistband.  Sold for $40 in 1956 (about $325 in today's dollar.)  A bare back halter top is paired with Punjab pants inspired by those of India.  Set Sold for $43 in 1956 (about $350 in today's dollar.)

    The pieces above are made from a black and white mini-check cotton printed with gold stripe bands.  The camisole top sundress has a very full skirt.  Sold for $25 in 1956 (about $203 in today's dollar.)  The swimsuit is worn with a matching beach shirt.  Set Sold for $28 in 1956 (about $228 in today's dollar.)
