This vintage 1940s black cotton shirtwaist dress would be just another well tailored day dress if not for its wonderful gathered super wide shawl collar. This collar gives the dress a strong sense of "film noir"style and can be arranged in several ways for several different looks. Button it up to the top, or open up a button or two and fan it out over a camisole. The cinched waist is covered with a belt: the original one is missing so I have matched it with a simple leather belt that is included in the sale. The skirt is gathered at the waist, but it narrows below the hips for a body defining look. Labelled Miss Tall America. This fits like a size medium . You will want this to be a large on you in order for it to fall as it does on the model who wears a size 8 dress. It will be more fitted if you are a larger size.Measurements:

Bust: 42"
Waist: 32"
Hips: 42"
Length: 46"

Very Good condition. No spots, stains, tears.

This stylish dress is breezy enough for a day out, dressy enough for cocktails and dinner.
