Product Description

It's always fun to learn the backstory of iconic things, and few other pieces of clothing are as iconic as the poodle skirt is. When you see a poodle skirt, you immediately think of the "fifties"! Where did the poodle skirt come from? Who invented it? Well, it was invented by a lovely lady named Juli Lynne Charlot.

Charlot found some success in Hollywood as a performer, however her real passion was fashion. But, she didn't know how to sew, and couldn't afford the materials for her lofty designs. In 1947, Charlot was invited to a Christmas party, and didn't have anything to wear, but she was bound and determined to come up with something. So, she grabbed some felt from her mother's sewing factory, made a "circle" skirt that required no sewing, applied appliques of various Christmas designs to it, and wore it to the party where she received a million compliments. She decided to make a couple more of the dresses and show them to the owner of an upscale boutique in Beverly Hills. He loved them, decided to display them in his shop, and they instantly sold out. She went on to start her own business, and eventually incorporated other designs into her dresses, including a poodle--and that became the most popular! Girls everywhere clamored to recreate this look for themselves. And the rest, as they say, is history!

This adorable Pink 50's Sweetheart Girls Costume includes everything you need for that fifties look, including the dress with pink poodle skirt and black top, the black and white polka dot pettiskirt, the matching scarf, the belt, and the monograms so you can personalize your outfit!

Comments about California Costumes Pink 50's Sweetheart Girls Costume:

My daughter wore it for her 3rd grade program and it was a big hit. Just didn't like the petticoat being too stiff and it made the skirt stick out a little funny. But it is super cute just flattened out the petticoat a little.
