Such a stunning dress, this is a brown evening gown made by the iconic Dorothy O'Hara (of Fashion Forecast when she first began her career). She was known for her sculpted attire and this dress is so very her and very much of that era. It is truly an even more beautiful piece in person. This gown is like a work of art it is so well-designed and made, and what is really nice about it is that it is rather hard to find a 1940s formal dress in this bigger than tiny size (basically a size 8). It is very chic, glamorous and oh so Hollywood.Very unique bottom, not quite floor-length and comes to points at sides. Stunning!

// Measurements:

(keep in mind these are tried + true measurements of the item laying flat & we suggest you consider your individual comfort as well.)

*very much like a size 8*

shoulder to shoulder: approximately 17"

shoulder to bottom of dress: 50"

// Condition Notes:

such a gem of a dress but does some have condition issues like the lace on the back sleeve coming a part a bit (shown in last photo) -- still intact but could use a professional mending, very slight armpit staining, and some fade / oxidation of the color at the bottom of the dress, loop in the back to connect at top of back needs to be re-created to clasp (I can do this free of charge but didn't want to mess with it if you prefer all original).
