Pat Premo was one of the handful of California designers that drove the west coast wing of the American sportswear initiative. She began her career making "little golf dresses" out of superior fabrics like Egyptian lawn cotton, with meticulous, intricate tailoring and dressmaker details. The Pat Premo label was started by Pat and her husband, Bill Schiminke in the 1940s. The label become known for its unique fabrics and prints and for its well-fitting lines that were always beautifully finished. Of particular note, was her fondness for horizontal stripes which contrary to common wisdom she found highly flattering.. The company ceased production in the 1970s.
This dress is in excellent condition for its age. In fact, it looks hardly worn. The only thing of note is that the label might need a few more stitches to secure firmly. The dress itself, is unfaded and the fabric is crisp.. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
