Bodice treatment of this type is so pretty – I’ve got examples from the 1940”s to early 1960’s. Although the dress is of modest quality, these kinds of necklines are not easy to make (no, I’ve never tried it – I can tell!) It’s obvious that the sewer knew what they were doing.
The fur is well-made and subtly dyed, with a brocaded lining. It has stood up to wear and time extremely well over 50 – 60 years.
. . . . . more examples of hand-tailored elegance that even the budget-minded woman could enjoy back in the day . . . . . . . ..
