Dorothy O'Hara was a costume designer for Hollywood films and is often compared to Ceil Chapman. Her unique way of manipulating and draping fabric resulted in fabulously figure flattering silhouettes. This gorgeous, one of a kind, late 40's dress is a stunning example of her work. Done in an unusual novelty print, a rare find, since most of the dresses you see with her label are black.

-Amazing silk print in violet blue and aqua shades against a navy blue background. Arbors with climbing vines, branches of leaves, gentlemen and gowned ladies. Sprinkling of white dots remind one of a garden stroll at midnight.
-Wrap front kimono bodice has a modified winged collar, diagonal pleating and shoulder pads.
-Asymmetrical peplum has structure due to interfacing and taffeta lining. There is a swag attached to the peplum that drapes at hip area.
-Straight skirt has a pleat running down the left side(same side as swag)
-Dress closes with a hook and eye at bust and waist/hip area and there is a metal side zipper on skirt. It is unlined except for the peplum.
-Dorothy O'Hara, California Label


Measurements
Bust 36/37"
Waist 30"
Hips 38" (please allow room for movement here)
Shoulder to waist 16"
Waist to hem 31"

There is a hook, but the eye is missing where the bodice wraps across bust area. We have not replaced, as the new owner may like to place it where it would best fit her. Otherwise this dress is flawless.
