70s The Vested Gentress sundress, Perfect for some summer time fun!

Rare hand screened printed comic of "Dog Eats Bird" sun dress. A recurring image in the Vested Gentress prints was a drawing of a dog based on a family pet and member of the family, a 200 pound Newfoundland hound named Briney Bear.

"He was the chairman of the board and had his own stationery. The hang tag, also designed by Bud was based on a drawing of Briney Bear. The hang tag logo can also be found on Bud's headstone." thevintagetraveler.wordpress.com

"The Vested Gentress was started in 1961 in Valley Forge, PA by Fritz ,Bud,Jackson Jr and his wife, Naomi. It was a print-based line known for its whimsical hand screen printed fabrics featuring Bud's drawings. Bud started his career in advertising and had a talent for drawing cartoons, two were featured in Look magazine and Playboy." www.classicchicagomagazine.com/about/
