From the early 1960s, a sheath dress in cream with two-tone brown embroidery. Short sleeves, squared neckline, gentle gathers below waist seam into every-so-slightly pegged skirt to create a subtle "wiggle" silhouette. Well-made, with pinked seams, full attached lining, and rayon hem tape. Closes at back with long zipper and top hook&eye. From the Martha A. estate.
Note that the dress is quite big on skinny Delphine, and clipping distorts its lovely lines, so we also show it unclipped. The waist appears to be slightly dropped, but we suspect it would fit right at the natural waist on a fuller figure.
