1947 Dress.

The most flattering dress of the 20th century.

Full, sweeping skirt and shaped bodice, for artful emphasis on legs, hips, waist, and bust.

Rita wore it. Coeds and secretaries wore it. Your mother wore it. Women looked wonderful in it. Still do. And always will

Unless the female form undergoes some kind of radical transformation.

Short-Sleeve 1947 Dress (No. 3579). Deliverance from the boxy, skimpy cut of WWII utility fashions. Pure cotton, with the same swinging sweep and sash ties as the short-sleeved version. Same V-neck bodice, darts at bust and waist. Lower calf length. Same notched collar to stand up pertly, if you wish. This one definitely belongs in your closet too. Imported.

Women's even sizes: 0 through 20.

Colors: Orange Plaid, Blue Plaid

Easy to wear
Splendid dress in every color and fabric. Classic design without trying too hard. Interesting finish to the cotton fabric. Love the cord version.

It went back
I had been eyeing this dress for years. When the floral pattern came out, I grabbed it! Unfortunately, it was not matched in anyway. Also the arm openings were boxy instead of rounded. They hit me in the arm, restricting movement and causing the dress to drape poorly. Sadly, it went back.

Classic Perfection
This is the kind of dress that makes you one of the best dressed people in the room without looking like you are trying too hard. It is easy. It is comfortable. You will look great. This is the one.

So flattering to your figure.
This dress runs true to size and does grand things for your figure. I like it so much that I have bought more than one! They used to have it in several solid colors. I was pleased to see the flower print and I bought it right away. I just love the 1947 style! Highly recommended!
