I thought you might like a peek at two of the Gilbert Adrian dresses I posted on my Facebook page yesterday. These are both from 1951, and aren't they stunning?
Silk stripes with a fabulous attached drape that can be worn as a hood.
You can't easily tell, but this silk is printed with large white birds on a harlequin check. The wide sleeves mimic bird's wings and there is a small white bird sitting above the bust on the left side as you look at the picture.
