Red women’s 1960’s Pendleton tunic dress

Here’s a great, fun entry from our “Pendleton on Parade” series!  Pendleton interprets Mod fashion!

When you hear the name “Pendleton”, do you automatically think of plaid shirts and sturdy wool jackets?  You’d be right, but you wouldn’t be thinking of the mod beauty that is this structured, red wool tunic dress.  Blending the sturdiness of Pendleton wool with the simplicity of Mod styling, this mini-length tunic could be worn on its own or with tights or leggings.  This 60’s piece still includes its original skinny belt in navy blue, fastened by a brass-toned buckle.  Click here for more views and sizing:

 

Pendleton trivia:  The founder of the Pendleton line was an English weaver named Thomas Kay, who found the then-new state of Oregon to be ideal to set up his operations in the 1860’s.   100 years later, people falling in love with the Mod style, which was very popular in Britain, found the Pendleton company producing the latest fashions.  It seems poetic somehow!
