1950 Jacques Fath. I'm fascinated by this feature where a length of fabric is wrapped/draped around and tucked through a loop. It turns up on a lot of designs in the 1950s, sometimes in a contrasting fabric.

I actually weirdly like the color scheme of her outfit. Though the shape would need some modernizing, unfortunately....why don't we all wear giant skirts?
