It’s cut on the bias, with panels inserted in the lower part of the skirt to make it swirl at mid-calf length. There is also a dark blue slip-dress to wear underneath.
There is no label, and after careful examination I would say that this frock was made in the 1980’s or 1990’s, maybe by a small designer. The construction is very professional. At first, I had wondered if it was truly from the 1930’s, but I doubt it.
Such a beautiful mystery! It bears further investigation. The real joy is that it fits me so well . . . . .
