Alice Blue Gown
Alice Blue Gown is a popular song written by Joseph McCarthy and Harry Tierney. The song, which was inspired by Alice Roosevelt Longworth's signature gown, was first performed by Edith Day in the 1919 Broadway musical Irene. In 1920 the song was recorded and released.
The song is about Irene's favourite dress which she wore until it was worn out, and begins:
I once had a gown it was almost new
Oh, the daintiest thing, it was sweet Alice Blue
