This very pretty frock has an unusual neckline. The collar is of 3 layers, and each one is bordered by covered wiring which allows the wearer to shape the neckline as desired. A friend of mine said that she remembers dresses of this type from the 1950’s. The style would certainly fit in with early ’50’s and late 1940’s fashion.
It’s also very tiny, so it all points to a time when average women’s figures and clothing sizes were much smaller than they are today.
The fabric appears to be silk. So lovely and flattering. Obviously, this dress was made to be worn to a party or other special occasion. Imagine my delight when I discovered it!
