Glamour oozed in Hollywood in the 1930s and 1940s, and this is the daytime dress the starlets wore. It emphasizes curves, drapes elegantly, and lends an air of discreet sexiness. The close fitting bodice is visually cinched in with front waistline ties, and fits smoothly into a flared skirt. Shoulder pads lend that commanding air to any aspiring celebrity. Suggested fabrics: Light to medium weight fabrics with drape, such as silk or rayon crepe, satin, challis, soft cotton.
