I'm such a fan of The J. Peterman Company - both their products and catalogs, and this dress is exactly why. I did a lengthy search on the internet to try to date it, but came up wanting. I'm guessing it might be early 1990's? It's a little bit flapper, a little bit sailor, and a lot garden party. It's 100% linen in a soft seashell pink color. It has a wide lapel sailor style collar with ties that can be worn hanging or as a bow. Drop waist style. The skirt has inverted pleats which create wonderful fullness. The long raglan sleeves have small slits on the outer seam at the cuffs. It's lightweight and the linen has a silky, soft feel to it. Still has the size and care tag attached. Excellent condition. Perfect for so many summer outings - drinks on the lawn at Castle Hill Inn, Newport or The Ocean House, Watch Hill, a garden wedding, a 1920's themed party, a sail around the bay on a summer evening...the possibilities are endless.
