SALE! Was $145.00.

This fabulous dress by R&K Originals is from the early 1940s, but is in like new condition!

The styling is what makes this dress so special. Velvet collar, original belt with absolutely no wear to loop holes, side panel construction (no shoulder seams), lined below waist, cloth covered top button under collar, and 5 AMAZING atomic style black buttons, each measuring 1 and 1/16 of an inch in diameter.

I've had this dress in my collection for many years. I live in California, so I don't have a lot of occasion to wear wool, and it is proportioned to fit someone a bit taller than my 5 feet, so it's been safely stored, never worn, in my cedar closet. I don't think it was ever worn, even before it came to me, because it is in pristine condition.

Fits size Small and XS. Equivalent of a size 2 today.

Measurements were taken with garment laying flat, so double for bust and waist and hips:

Bust: 18 inches (fits size 32-34 comfortably)
Waist: 14 inches
Hips: 18 inches
Shoulders are free because there are no shoulder seams, but a 14.5 - 17 inch range would fit
Shoulder to waist: 15 – 15.5 inches
Shoulder to bottom of hem: 38 inches

Shown on a dress form that measures 35.5 inches around the widest part of Bust, 24.5 inches around the waist and 34.5 inches around the hips.

Comes to you cleaned and ready to wear, from a smoke-free home.
