From the 1980s here's a dress by Edith Strauss. The dress is made in a cap sleeve style with an elasticized smocked waist. It features a very feminine floral print, pink flower buds with green leaves on a blue background. The fabric is a cotton voile. It is meant to be worn in a blouson style.

Size 4 is stated, it is a small size.Please rely on the following measurements for size all given in inches.

Shoulders: 15

Sleeves: 5

Bust: 34

Waist: 18 unstretched to 26 stretched

Hips: 38

Overall length: 44

It's in very good condition, no tears or stains. It does have loops so would have originally had a tie belt, which was no longer with the dress when purchased. The loops can be cut away, one has come unstitched at one end.

A little bit of info about Edith Strauss. Edith Strauss is a Canadian designer who began her career in 1947 at a Montreal dress manufacturer. After her husband's career forced a move to Toronto, she started her label there in 1965. Her garments were sold at Saks Fifth Avenue during the early 1970s and in 1981 she became the first Canadian designer to sell a collection in Japan.
The McCord Museum has five Edith Strauss dresses as part of their permanent collection.

This is a very nice example of an Edith Strauss design - great acquisition for the Canadian design collector.
