Elbow Sleeve 1947 Dress
Elbow-Sleeve 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.
Elbow-Sleeve 1947 Dress (No. 5765). Deliverance from the boxy, skimpy cut of WWII utility fashion. Pure cotton with the same swinging sweep and sash ties as our long and short-sleeve versions. Same V-neck bodice, darts at bust and waist. Same side pockets. Same notched collar to stand up pertly, if you wish. Rolled cuffs at sleeves, mid-calf length. Striking new print and color that definitely belong in your closet.Imported.
