Retro Weird: Chicago Skyline Dress

0 Posted by - June 3, 2014 - Retro Weird Chicago

Featured in the November 1937 issue of Popular Science (page 70), this City Skyline Dress is one of the many inventions and innovations touted on the magazine’s pages.  Its creator – a Chicago native? – thinks this “odd costume” may start  “a new style of geographical gowns” where women wear their cities on their hemlines.  Compared to the scale of 1937 Chicago, to fit today’s supertall skyline, we may need a full-length gown.
