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. Same notched
collar to stand up pertly, if you wish.
This one definitely belongs in your
Women's sizes: 2 through 20.
Length: Ranges from 48.5” to 51.5”. Varies by size.
Colors: Pink Stripe and Pink Plaid.
Care Instructions: Dry Cleaning Recommended.
