    Hello I would like to know what era this dress falls in

    Its taffeta material with a very bold deco chevron

    The zipper up the front was prominent in the 30s but I suggest the dress being post 47 new look

    I'd say your date in your Etsy shop of late 40s or early 50s is about right.

    BTW, there is a thread on help dating items in the Powder Room somewhere

    The first thing that popped into my head was, "Shouldn't you be dating people?" LOL

    Is the waist dropped or is that just the way it's hanging?
