About Waitress Diners
Quicker than a 1957 Chevy, sexier than a pin-up girl, and willing give you service with a smile, ketchup, and exact change: the 1950s diner waitress. Embrace the nostalgic Americana of the girl with the fitted dress, cuffed sleeves, paper hat, and the belt coin dispenser. She might even have roller skates. From "American Graffiti" to "Mel's Diner," the diner waitress appears often in TV, movies, and art. Turn your chrome-encrusted home diner into something truly special with a set of cafe curtains featuring black polka dots and retro waitresses taking orders and delivering malts. Classic cars receiving service from bespectacled, beehived honeys would be ideal to make tablecloths, napkins, and placemats to add to your mid-century vibe. Retro and retro-inspired fabric is a colorful addition to your kitchen in lime, aqua, and orange, all colors that work well for a waitress dress. Borrow a page from yesterday's fashion blog and discover the fitted, button-down, collared diner dresses that can be reinvented with a few accessories or add just a touch of the past with a lace-edged apron. There is a vast inventory of vintage diner waitress uniforms, artwork, and cloth available on eBay.
