This is a 1930s era day dress made in an off-white linen with zipper closures. The dress was sold at B. Altman & Co. of Paris and New York - B. Altman was a high-end fashion and fabrics department store founded in 1865 and located on Fifth Avenue in New York from 1906 until its closure in 1989. The dress is made in a simple style, understated, but with a design influence dictated by the art deco movement of the era. It has a V shaped collarless neckline, adjustable with the brass zipper down the centre bodice. It has cap sleeves, slanted zippered pockets at either front side under the defined waistline, a kick pleat at the centre bottom front and back and is made in a below the knee length. It has a four snap closure at the left side, along with a hook and eye at the left waist. There are loops for a belt, but no belt is provided - personally, I think that a belt might interfere with the line of the dress. The dress is unlined.

Material: Linen - quality fabric with beautiful finish and fall

Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders and sleeves: 26” across from the edge of one cap sleeve, over the shoulders to the edge of the other cap sleeve

Bust: 36” around, taken t the armpits

Waist: 30” around, uncinched

Hips: 37” around

Length: 46”, measured flat

Condition:

It is in very good condition with no noted wear, tear, soiling or staining. Aside from the missing belt, very well kept and stored over the last 85 to 90 years.

This is a very nice example of a 1930s day dress - quality linen from a renowned New York department store, lovely and simple to wear, very contemporary looking!
