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.
Sleeveless Flirty 1947 Dress (No. 2955), for warm weather, deliverance from the boxy, skimpy cut of WWII utility fashions. Pure cotton, with same swinging sweep and sash ties as the long-sleeve version. Same bodice with darts at bust and waist. Upper-calf length. Same notched collar and lapel to stand up pertly, if you wish.
This one definitely belongs in your closet too.
