1940s Morsam Multi Color Striped Dress

I love love love these striped Morsom pieces! They are just absolute prime examples of the best of this era. The colors, the care in lining up the stripes, the fabric - all perfection! This on is really unusual as it is a inverted and dramatic extra swingy A line shape - it basically cascades out from the shoulders. The short sleeves are cuffed and the striping all meets at an inverted angle along the seams. The fabric is a silk taffeta with ribbons of rilky rayon worked directly into the fabric. The front huge slanted pockets are just fabulous - they are the exact right touch to finish this wonderful piece. I have shown it cinched but you could off course wear it tented and free as well! Killer forties dress and in excellent condition.
