dixie lou frock 1940's WRAP DRESS 40's dressing gown with belt S (A2)
I think this may have originally been a 'dressing gown'?? This would have originally been full-length, I think it's been hemmed somewhere along the way, as the hem thread differs slightly from the thread of the rest of the dress (can't tell unless you turn it inside out). Deep burgundy/red with tiny tiny flecks of golden metallic thread, just here and there, Washable synthetic, softer than 'taffeta', but silky like that. The tie belt is reversible, one side is read, and the other is bright blue. Trapunto stitched collar and cuffs (picture 4). Closes at the waist with 2 waist snaps, and then has the tie belt. You could actually wear this as a regular dress, but you might want to add a couple more snaps in the inside front so it doesn't come open when the wind blows. :) I wear a US size S, and this fit me well. Please compare the measurements below with a dress you have that fits well. Great condition!
