dating vintage clothing

this is good to know and very interesting
I am excited to have found this in my daily research

found here for more details

What we know
+ There is a label that reads "Bobbie Brooks"
+ There is no care label
+ There is a metal zipper
+ There is no fabric content
+ The skirt is partially lined

Because the garment lacks a care label we know this skirt was made prior to 1972. Read more about care labels here. But now let's narrow down the years even more.

If you visit the website Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS) you can search for when trademarks were filed and used.
1.] Click on " New User Form Search (Basic)"
2.] In the "Search Term" field, enter the tag label (Bobbie Brooks)
3.] Press ENTER and wait for the search results
