Oh so chic 1950 Dorothy O'Hara rayon dress! Done in a black rayon with gathered bust cups, slightly v shaped waist seam and flattering curved neckline. Skirt is a faux sarong with interfaced hip fan panel. Will hug every curve! Back metal zip and unlined.
"Dorothy O’Hara endorses the slim silhouette, exclusively, Her distinctive signature, the “all-in-one-piece” drapery, places this designer in a class of her own. She literally wraps the body in fabric and her ingenuity makes the most of a woman’s figure.
Working with the grain of the fabric and molding it to give depth to the bust and minimize the waistline, the “poured-into” style is nevertheless a step-in dress in every case. The woman can slip easily into her clothes after hairdo and makeup." Los Angeles Times, July 9, 1954
