Pat Premo was one of a handful of California designers that drove the west coast wing of the American sportswear industry. 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.

Excellent vintage condition.

No notable flaws that I can see, it is in great condition for its age. A patch and a tiny bit of discoloration to the inside bodice lining, but not seen from outside.

Please note that these are vintage items that have been used and loved over the years, As such, they may display slight evidence of their age. Any notable flaws will be highlighted here.
