This is terrific vintage cotton tropical print dress without a label, but looks like the Alfred Shaheen dresses of the same era. This dress is from the late 1940's or early 1950's, this estate had vintage clothing from both of those decades - a virtual mid century vintage clothing paradise!
I love the shape and fit of this dress and the beautiful copper or rust tropical fabric. The dress closes with a back metal zipper. The only flaw I can find is a kink in one of the metal prongs of the zipper, but it still zips.
There is a 4" slit for comfort at the back center hem and it is ready to wear! Our model is wearing this dress with a vintage Yves Saint Laurent Straw Hat, a pair of vintage alligator peep toe shoes from the 1940's, and a white woven straw box handbag (all sold separately).
