Vogue 1197; ca. 1952; One-piece dress. Slim skirt with side front released dart pleats joins the bodice at waistline. Low, shaped neckline with points. Released dart pleats either side of center-front and center-back above midsection. Short kimono sleeves.
"Paris can call it a cocktail dress, but we can all call it a short dinner dress, too. This is a single inking of black (could be any dark colour) with tiny pleats pegging the hips. The neckline shapes to an entirely new angle: the curve, at its wildest this side of the shoulder." (from Vogue, October 15, 1952)
