fashion frock PERIWINKLE PURPLE DRESS bow M 40's 50's (G9)
Cute career dress from "Fashion Frock", 1940's/early 50's era. The last picture shows a very similar dress in a 1935 magazine, but this particular dress is not as old as the 30's. Possibly a wool blend, a tight but light weave. The dress is periwinkle and white crossweave. The buttons are plummy purple, and the bow is purple acetate taffeta. The buttons all the way up the front are all functional and present. Under the bow, there is a bit of a keyhole opening, and there's a hook/eye closure at the neckline (picture 7). The belt in the pictures is actually from the 1980's, but I'm including it, because the buckle is plummy plastic in a similar purple as the buttons. Overall excellent condition, there's a touch of perspiration discolor in the immediate underarms, but not enough that others would notice, it's not seen in normal wear. Fits like a M, Please compare the measurements below with a dress you have that fits well.
