50's/60's Vintage Dress Chocolate Brown Chiffon Drape Cape Dress with Bow and Rose Southern Lady Blanche Dubois

Southern chiffon for the 'lady' in you! This dress reminds me of Blanche in "A Streetcar Named Desire" but it could be out of a number of Tennessee Williams' plays! Flower can be removed for a simpler presentation of a draped bow. Drape falls over shoulders in a cape--see photo on figure.

waist-26.5 inches
bust: 34 inches
hips: 38 inches (outer chiffon is free, but lining is pencil skirt.
length bodice: 16
union label

condition: very good- very faint lighter area on right front side of skirt -hidden by folds
small stain on bow.-grease?pencil eraser tip size and some faint water spots on drape-Has not been cleaned and a good dry cleaning would rid these I am sure. Flower needs to be steamed to freshen out petals. *Please note that the chiffon may have a few pulls from handling--these straighten out when you smooth the fabric out in each direction with just your fingers. All flaws are minute and picky and do not affect the appearance or structure when worn!
