233 Glamour Girl Dress


Misses 6-16.

Glamour oozed in Hollywood in the 1930s and 1940s, and this is the daytime dress the starlets wore. It emphasizes curves, drapes elegantly, and lends an air of discreet sexiness, can be made at ankle, mid-calf and knee length. The close-fitting bodice is highlighted by a narrow "V" neckline, visually cinched into a curved midriff with front waistline ties, and fits smoothly into a flared skirt due to the fitted back hip yoke. Sleeves are gathered by the elbow, dress zips at left side seam. Shoulder pads lend that commanding air to any aspiring celebrity.

Suggested fabrics: Light to medium-weight fabrics with drape, such as silk or rayon crepe, satin, challis, soft cotton.
