Firstly apologies for posting here as it is not on topic (delete if necessary), but thought it might be a good place and I've no knowledge of this type of thing at all.
I'm doing some research for a friend abroad, I'll try to be brief. I realize people here are not of such an age but there seems a wealth of knowledge from previous generations here. Online searching doesn't really help too much apart from a variety of images.In suburban London 1950s would something referred to as a 'flowered rayon dress" for outdoors be for everyday wear or going out to the cinema or shopping or all of these? and worn by working class women or middle class women or both? It seems one of the major fashions of the 50s from what I can tell. It's a very broad question I know, maybe a bit how long is a piece of string, but even that would be useful to know. I've ordered a couple of books from the library, but while I wait ...any memories would be useful too.
