Vintage Fish Dress & Sweater Set Modernist Novelty Print & Buttons S / M - David Goodstein Filene’s French Shops
Whimsical little fish appear to swim about in this charming vintage modernist dress and sweater set with matching mother of pearl buttons by David Goodstein for Filene’s French Shops, circa 1960s.
The summery dress is sleeveless and consists of an off-white linen fabric with novelty print of red and blue fish and matching mother of pearl buttons. The dress also has a Peter Pan collar, fitted bodice with coin pocket, original belt which has yellowed a little over time, slim line skirt with front pleat, hidden side pockets, and embroidered labels along the inside skirt seam for “David W. Goodstein” and for “The French Shops – Filene’s • Boston”.
The matching shrug or bolero sweater is navy blue in color and consists of what feel like a lambswool knit. It is fully lined in a red cotton or cotton blend fabric as shown, has short sleeves, a Filene’s shop label, and is trimmed in matching embroidered fish of red, white, and royal blue, along with sequins and pearl beads.
