Undersea Fish and Flora Print One Shoulder Dress with Side Peplum circa 1940s
It wasn't until I got this girl on the mannequin that I realized just how stunning she is!
We've got a one shoulder bodice with gathers at sides of bust and a "collar" wrapping up to top of left shoulder with little fins that peak atop. We've got a structured, dramatic side peplum on the right hip. We've got an asymetrical hemline.
And then- the print.
Shade of blues and black on a white background create an undersea fantasy world, with silhouettes of coral reefs and plants dotted with bright fish and flowers.
Made of a very lightweight rayon mimicking silk, has side metal zip. By Baumelle of California. Flawless condition.
38" bust, 30" waist, 18" bodice, 50" hips, 47" long
