1940's Swimming Fish Novelty Print Black & Pink Cotton Halter Dress w/ Bolero


With its vibrant swimming fish novelty print and flawless styling, this Margaret Newman designer dress ensemble has the casual elegance the 1940's were known for. The fully-boned sweetheart plunge bodice with halter strap is very flattering and effortless to wear. The hourglass nipped waistline with full swing skirt is both ladylike and sexy, cut to showcase your natural assets. My favorite part is the matching wide collar double-breasted bolero vest which is a statement piece in it's own right. For every woman, novelty prints are a fashion must-have. It's a style for all ages, simply because it exudes an undeniably youthful flair, and yet remains incredibly timeless. A gorgeous piece of wearable art! Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:up to 40 inches Length top of bodice (not including halter strap):11 inches Length waist to hem:30 inches This Margaret Newman of Miami designer novelty print dress set is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or stains. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This ensemble is over 60 years old and is truly stunning.
