A truly stunning Dorothy O'Hara dress in a rare larger size! Done in a stretchy rayon jersey and printed with blue roses, olive leaves on a white background. Signature asymmetrically gathered and draped neckline and faux sarong skirt. Fitted waist and square neckline. Bodice is lined, skirt is unlined. Back metal zip.
"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
