Ikat 1947 Dress
The 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.
Ikat 1947 Dress (No. 7569). Deliverance from the boxy, skimpy cut of WWII utility fashions, modernized here in a vibrant ikat print. Splendid cotton with a bit of spandex satin woven through for a bit of give. Swinging sweep and sash tie. Mid-calf length. V-neck bodice, darts at bust and waist. Notched collar to stand up pertly, if you wish. Faux shell buttons at front.
This one definitely belongs in your closet, too. Imported.
