Orange is a major trend for 2013, and this flattering dress features several shades. Beautiful medallion print bodice in a silky knit has long sleeves with single-button cuffs, bust darts, and a jewel neckline to wear with or without the matching scarf (attached with easily clippable stitch at the back. we'd wear it in our hair!). Gentle A-line double-knit skirt has double, stitched-down hip pleats at front. Belt loops. Unlined. Nylon Scovill back zip. Union made in the USA in the late 1960s or early 70s. From the estate of Elizabeth W., "Queen of the 60s Shift Dress."

Labels: only a 1963-'74 ILGWU label remains
Fiber/Care: unmarked, bodice feels like silky nylon (or a blend), skirt is polyester, washable
Condition: one of the side belt loops is missing, and the tiny loop at center front indicates there was a very skinny belt that is also missing. add your own, or snip the loops and go without.
- the fabrics both have a bit of stretch -
waist (no stretch): 29"/73.5cm
length: 39.5"/100.25cm shoulder to hem on front
scarf: 41"/104cm long, so might work as a belt
