Velvet 1947 Dress
The Velvet 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.
Velvet 1947 Dress (No. 7148). Deliverance from the boxy, skimpy cut of WWII utility fashions. Splendid stretch velvet translation of our classic 1947 Dress with the same swinging sweep and sash ties. Mid-calf length. Same V-neck bodice, darts at bust and waist. Same notched collar to stand up pertly, if you wish. Cotton with a touch of spandex. Button front. Imported.
This one definitely belongs in your closet, too. Imported.
