Curator Notes

Excellent condition. There is a paper along with the garment that mentioned, "Dress belonged to Inez Nagel Taylor, Class of 1960 San Jacinto High School. The dress was made for her by her grandmother in about 1956. She crocheted it and then the lining was made for it. This piece was worn to dance parties."
