A not so simple black drop waist dress straight from the 1930s/1940s made right here in NOLA! The drop waist has a delicate scalloped detail that wraps around your whole body. Zip up back and lined on the inside.

(measured flat then doubled where needed)
Bust: 39 inches
Drop Waist: 32 inches
Length from armpit to bottom hem: 35 inches
Tag: IRENE: Exclusively for Maison Blanch, New Orleans*
Estimated modern size: medium
Condition: excellent except for the loose stitches on the back of the drop waist scallop as pictured in photo #4. There is also slight pilling throughout the dress. I took a picture of one of the more "dramatic" areas showing this in photo #5.

*Note: Maison Blanche (White House in French) was a department store in New Orleans that began in 1923.
