Such a beautiful coral color on this fun and spunky frock from the late 1930’s or early 1940’s. I love the great big buttons and the pleated flounce at the hem. Polka dots all over. The fabric is an interesting textured weave with some pattern in it, like some men’s shirts of the ’40’s and ’50’s that are so intriguing.
Made by Lora Lenox, a company that manufactured women’s clothing over several decades. This one was definitely a moderately – priced item, but not of poor quality. Just to have survived since the ’40’s in such good condition says a lot.
It’s got the hallmark shoulder pads and a variation of that classic shirtwaist style. When I caught sight of it, half-hidden, it was the color that arrested my eye. Coral is so flattering to most women and so perfect for Summer!
Keep your peepers peeled, ’cause you just never know . . . . . . . . . .
