Whirl-skirted dress Orlon and wool dress
Dining, dancing and dating are in the future for this glamorous, whirl skirted dress, made in a luxurious new fabric of Orlon acrylic fiber and wool called Thalspun Doeskin Jersey. Exceptionally soft and appealing to the hand, this fabric has superior loft, drapes beautifully and comes in a wide range of appealing colors. It can be durably pleated and is washable, because of inherent qualities of DuPont's acrylic fiber. Snugly fitted bodice with scoop neck and three quarter sleeves tops an extra full pleated skirt.
