c. 1943-1946
Gift of James and Cheryl McKenzie

This rayone crepe dress (aqua color) has shoulder pads, cap sleeves and a metal zipper down the proper left side. There is a decorative row of sixteen (16) self covered buttons down the front, from the "V" neckline to the curved, dropped waistline. The curved waistline in the front accentuates the female form with a series of small gathers in the skirt, only at the center of the skirt. There is a band of decorative machine stitching and small studs on either side in the front, dropping from just below the shoulder line and curving to the side seam in the bodice. At the waistline in the back is an attached belt. (The buckle is missing.)

Used: Wilma Edith Blurton McKenzie | Adult ~ female
