A vintage 1940s dress with a ruffle across the front bodice, shoulder pads, zippers at the ends of the sleeves, back neck zip, side metal zip, and gathered fabric panel on the hip (the skirt is fitted underneath). The heavier, twill red fabric feels like a rayon fabric--it feels like rayon gabardine, but doesn't have the diagonal lines. The maker is Foxbrownie (a higher-end design house in the 1940s). Size: small to s/m Bust: 37" Waist: 29" (will drape slightly smaller) Hip: 37" Length: 48" Condition: Very good to excellent. A few tiny pinholes on left sleeve and a couple small, faint fade spots at the bottom of the gathered fabric panel. The fade spots are unnoticeable when dress is worn, and the pinholes are tiny enough that they are barely noticeable (see last two pics for close ups).
