Kerrybrooke was a house brand of Sears, Roebuck & Company, and Kerrybrooke fashions were therefore sold exclusively through that retailer. For more information on the history of Sears, Roebuck & Company, please visit the excellent Vintage Fashion Guild label resource located here.
This captivating bow novelty dress is the best and most magnificent example of 1950’s Sears Kerrybrooke fashion ever seen by Desert Belle Vintage. This stunning dress is an exemplary example of the effortless glamour and elegance seen in many 1950’s garments. Designed to be dressed up or dressed down, versatile and wearable, this dress is perfect for an afternoon tea or lunch but also superb for an evening cocktail / dinner affair. This dress is constructed of an exceptionally textured polished cotton with a creative and unique stripes and bows novelty print. The raised texture of the polished cotton has the look of a fine wave, almost swirl-like design. The novelty print of this dress is breathtaking with its 6 striking black bows encircling the dress and strategically placed striped patterns. The bows have a drawn look composed of many “sketched” lines creating their shapes, and these lines pick up on the other striped lines in the novelty print. The bodice has elegant black striped lines in varying thicknesses designedly arranged for a slimming, flattering fit. The impressively voluminous full circle skirt has black lines creating a starburst effect which start thin at the waist and then gradually flare out to get wider as they approach the hem. Over 40 sparkling rhinestones are scattered along the front shoulders and down the beautiful v-neck plunge of the front bodice. The alluring v-back of the dress mirrors the flattering front v-neck. This extraordinary dress will bring out your inner bombshell, turn heads and have all eyes on you!

This vintage 1950’s Sears, Roebuck and Co. Kerrybrooke dress is in excellent unworn deadstock without tags condition. This dress was pristinely stored in a hope chest for the last 50+ years. This dress is fresh with crisp fabric and looks as though it was just purchased yesterday! The novelty print is rich and vibrant. Dress has a beautifully working side metal zipper. This dress has hand-sewn whipstitching at the hem indicating a conscientious attention to garment construction not seen in contemporary mass-produced clothing. The dress does not have its original belt. This dress does not require a belt, but should you wish to add one, a simple, thin black belt (or red or pink belt to add a pop of color) would look wonderful. One darkened rhinestone on the front bodice is the only sign of age on this magnificent dress. This dress was styled with a crinoline that was used for display purposes only and is not included with the dress.
