1950s Dorothy O'Hara Black Crepe Dress
California designer Dorothy O’Hara is famous among vintage fashion collectors for what she was able to do for a woman’s figure.

Nipped waist is emphasized with inset piping, slim skirt has the tiniest folded slit on the side. Nylon zipper at left.
Measures 38" bust and hips, 29" waist, 41" length.
