This Dress is smartly fashioned of fine Printed and Plain Voile, and is ideally suited for maternity wear. The basque front is most effective in concealing the figure changes. It drapes softly over the top of skirt and terminates in a sash which can be easily adjusted. A white net frill and crochet buttons soften the square neck. Fine pleasted frills of plain voile give the full skirt becoming long lines. Kimono sleeves of plain voile. Waist lining with elastic waistband. Colors: Navy blue ground with assorted figures. Sizes: 34 to 46 bust, skirt length about 36 inches, with wide basted hem.
