Labels: Shannon Rodgers for Jerry Silverman, 1974-'95 ILGWU

Fiber/Care: although the ILGWU tag indicates the dress was made after 1974, by which time content labels were required (and metal zippers rarely used), and the Shannon Rodgers for Jerry Silverman label was defunct by 1978, there is no fiber content information. Perhaps the tag was paper and lost in cleaning. We think it's a high-quality synthetic blend, with rayon lining, but the dress and the braid trim could be wool or a wool blend. Dry-Clean only.
Condition: No flaws to note. The hem appears to have been taken up a bit some point.
*We've had this dress professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear.*
bodice: 15.5"/39cm (to lower seam)
bust: 36"/91.5cm plus some room from darts

Clipped to better fit Lola in the photos.
