Aimée's Collection: Vintage 1940/50 Gorgeous Evening Gown

Simplicity Pattern Number 2442, Copyright date unknown (ca. 1940/50)

Junior Misses' and Misses' Dress with Bolero in Ballerina and Evening Lengths:  The dart-fitted bodice is styled with a bias fold at the upper edge.  Shoulder straps are optional.  The softly pleated skirt falls in billowy folds and joins the bodice at the natural waistline.  A Peter Pan collar and cuffed, three-quarter length sleeves are featured on the dart-fitted bolero.  Loops and buttons finished the front edge.  Style 2 is ballerina length and the bolero is in contrast.

Comments:  Oh my dress.  I need a ball to go to.  Or even an adult prom.  I am seeing the dress on the left in some really bright stripes lined with black or other psychedelic colors.  Oooooh...
